Yes, I know you are bugged by the slow pace of executions.
But no, cutting the Alabama Supreme Court out of death penalty appeals is not a good idea in any universe. The proposed will would stop death penalty appeals at the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, which (along with its Civil counterpart) constitutes Alabama’s intermediate appellate court.
I doubt this bill will pass and it probably won’t pass constitutional muster even if it does. Likely the federal courts would strike it down on due process grounds.
It is not good that anybody even remotely thinks this is a good idea.
When somebody’s life is on the line, more eyes involved in the review process are better.
