California voters passed Proposition 66, which would reform and ultimately expedite the death penalty process, by a narrow margin.

Its passing presents a moral quandary for Gov. Jerry Brown.

He’s been outspokenly opposed to the death penalty in his time as governor, attorney general and during his presidential campaign.

Will Governor Brown have to act on Prop. 66 or can he avoid executing any inmates sitting on death row?
