An act concerning crimes and punishments and procedures relating thereto

An act concerning crimes and punishments and procedures relating thereto
Creator: Kansas Legislature.
Date: February 20, 1990
The Kansas Legislature passed Senate Bill 77 in 1990. Known as the "hard-40" bill, the bill allowed for a maximum forty-year prison sentence for persons convicted of premeditated murder. In 1972, the U. S. Supreme Court decision in Furman v. Georgia overturned capital punishment laws in many states, including Kansas. A strong supporter of capital punishment, Governor Mike Hayden signed the forty-year bill after efforts to pass a death penalty bill failed in the legislature. Kansas did not reinstate capital punishment until 1994.

Elaine Fisher to Governor Mike Hayden

Elaine Fisher to Governor Mike Hayden
Creator: Fisher, Elaine
Date: January 3, 1989
Elaine Fisher of Wichita, Kansas, writes Governor Mike Hayden of Topeka concerning late-term abortions. Fisher expresses her disapproval of late-term abortions and her support for state legislation outlawing such procedures. She suggests that Dr. George Tiller's clinic in Wichita is a very profitable business and may unduly influence state lawmakers' decisions on abortion. Fisher further claims that out-of-state girls in their ninth month of pregnancy visit Dr. Tiller's clinic on a daily basis. She asks for the governor's position on two bills before the state legislature: the Post Viable Child Act (S.B. 343) and the Parental Consent Bill (S.B. 225). Fisher enclosed an anti-abortion circular with her letter. The 1973 U. S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade confirmed a woman's constitutional right to terminate her pregnancy and limited the restrictions states can impose on abortion.
