The death penalty is the ultimate denial of civil liberties. It inherently violates the constitutional ban against cruel and unusual punishment and the guarantees of due process of law and of equal protection under the law. Here in Nevada, no drug company will provide the necessary drugs to perform executions and yet death penalty cases are still be tried, costing the taxpayers millions. In 2015, $800,000 was spent on a new death chamber without the means to carry out executions and will probably never be used for that purpose. 

A.B. 237 will end the practice of the death penalty in Nevada. Use the resources below as to why the death penalty is wrong for Nevada.
