Two bills pre-filed in the state Legislature propose eliminating the death penalty in Louisiana.

SB142 by Sen. Dan Claitor, R-Baton Rouge, and HB101 by Reps. Terry Landry, D-New Iberia, and Steven Pylant, R-Winnsboro, would institute a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of probation, parole or suspension of sentence for convictions of capital crimes, including first-degree murder, first-degree rape of a child under the age of 13 and treason.

If passed, the legislation would apply only to crimes committed after Aug. 1 according to the pre-filed bill.

The bills will be considered during the 2017 regular legislative session, which begins Monday.
