Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam speaks with reporters about his decision to sign a bill passed by the state’s General Assembly that allows execution by electrocution in the event that the state can’t acquire lethal-injection drugs. The governor indicated, though, that the state currently has access to chemicals approved for use in lethal-injection executions. “As I understand it, the Department of Corrections has the drug available,” he said. Haslam made these comments on May 23 following a memorial service for fallen Tennessee soldiers.
