STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 09915 The purpose of this legislation is to repeal the "year and a day rule" for murder and manslaughter. Most states have abolished it. Unfortunately, some crime victims live longer than the rule, but ultimately die from the wounds suffered during the crime. The repeal of this rule will allow the people who committed the crimes to be tried and sentenced accordingly. FISCAL IMPACT There is no fiscal impact to the state's general fund.
