Supporters of a proposed North Carolina Senate call it a rewriting of the Racial Justice Act. Passed by the N.C. General Assembly in 2009, the Racial Justice Act sought to ensure that "no person shall be subject to or given a sentence of death or shall be executed pursuant to any judgment that was sought or obtained on the basis of race."
