Makers and suppliers of Alabama's execution drugs would be kept secret and not released to the public or the courts under a bill approved Thursday in the Alabama House of Representatives.
The Alabama Department of Corrections is seeking legislation that would keep secret the manufacturers and suppliers of lethal injection drugs used in state executions.
The man who has overseen the long, complicated job of paying out billions of dollars to the victims of the BP oil spill was relieved of his duties Thursday when a federal court took over the claims process in the aftermath of a historic settlement agreement.
"We're having a terrible time getting the drug. The Department of Corrections can't get the drugs. It's just simple," Greer said.
Rep. Lynn Greer, R-Rogersville, said companies are becoming hesitant to supply the drugs because of the threat of lawsuits and backlash from death penalty opponents.
