The governor met with South African activist Desmond Tutu, as well as prosecutors, murder victims’ families, death penalty opponents and religious leaders, according to the Associated Press. Quinn, a supporter of the death penalty “when properly implemented”, made emotional appeals to many opponents of the law who want to prevent the execution of innocent people.

“I’ve heard from many, many people of good faith and good conscience on both sides of the issue. And I’ve tried to be very meticulous and writing down notes and studying those notes and books and e-mails. They’ve really spoken from the heart. I’ve been very proud of the people of Illinois,” Quinn said recently.

Until enacted, prosecutors can still seek the death penalty for suspects until the law is in place.
