The Arkansas Supreme Court last year ruled the legislature gave too much leeway to the Department of Correction on how to administer the death penalty.
That resulted in the death penalty being halted until legislators can pass a law that can survive a court challenge.
The process started today.
Senate Bill 73 now lists the specific chemicals the Department of Correction will use in lethal injections.
Attorney general Dustin McDaniel told committee members he isn't testifying his opinion on the death penalty, but just make sure Arkansas death penalty law is enforceable.
The bill now moves to the full senate.
