Proposition 34 would eliminate the death penalty in California and replace it with a sentence of life in prison with no chance for parole. Importantly, it would apply retroactively, meaning it applies to anyone who has already been convicted of murder and sentenced to death. The measure would also make it a requirement for anyone found guilty of murder to work while in prison, with some of their wages to be given to funds for victims and their families. Prop 34 would also earmark $100 million in grants (paid for from projected savings created by the proposal) to law enforcement agencies for investigation of homicide and rape.
