Schaaf on Execution Drugs

Through a Senate measure, Missouri lawmakers want to require the state to reveal the provider of execution drugs.
The bill would prohibit the state from buying execution drugs with cash or coins.
Currently, from whom and where executions drugs are being bought is done behind closed doors.
Senator Rob Schaaf of St. Joseph says the bill is intended to make executions more transparent for Missourians.
