CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of Congress with respect to the use of racially based quotas designed to thwart the implementation of the death penalty.

Whereas a racially based quota system designed to thwart the implementation of the death penalty is vigorously opposed by the National District Attorneys Association and the National Association of Attorneys General; and

Whereas the death penalty is supported by a majority of Americans as a weapon against the spread of violent crime: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that neither the President nor any other entity in the executive branch should attempt to impose a racially based quota system to challenge death penalties because such a system is antithetical to the American ideal of justice.
