(grant) as for that the order actially means: it puts in place an executive moratorium on the death penalty in the form of a reprieve for all individuals sentenced to death in california. - withdraws california's lethal injection protocol - immediately closes the execution chamber at san quentin - and clearly states clearly the directive does not provide for the release of any individual from prison or otherwise alter any current conviction or sentence.
