Timely Justice Act
The Florida Supreme Court approved a series of changes Thursday aimed at improving the death-penalty appeals process.
The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the constitutionality of a 2013 law that legislative supporters said would reduce delays in carrying out the death penalty.
More than 150 new laws passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Rick Scott will go into effect on Monday.
In the final days of the legislative session, the Florida legislature passed a bill which limits the appeals and speeds up the execution process of those on death row.
