Idaho governor signs law allowing firing squad executions
Idaho becomes 5th state to legalize firing squad executions if lethal injection drugs are unavailable
The governor of Idaho has signed into law a bill legalizing the use of a firing squad in state executions.
Gov. Brad Little signed the bill after it was passed on March 20 by a veto-proof majority of the Idaho Legislature.
Under the new law, firing squads will not be the first option and will only be utilized for executions when the drugs necessary for a lethal injection are unavailable.
