This coincidence is from today’s news. It seems New Hampshire is of the same mind as New Mexico. I hope the measure passes.
“Three months after a man was sentenced to die for killing a police officer, New Hampshire’s first death sentence in 50 years, the House voted to repeal capital punishment. The chamber voted 193 to 174 to send the bill to the Senate. Gov. John Lynch, a Democrat, said he would veto the bill if it reached his desk. The inmate, Michael Addison … was sentenced to death for killing a Manchester officer in 2006. Death penalty opponents questioned the fairness of capital punishment, especially after a millionaire, John Brooks, received a life sentence in November for hiring others to kill a repairman. Mr. Addison could not afford private counsel.”
