Gov. Terry McAuliffe says pharmacies that supply lethal injection drugs to the state should remain secret.
The governor proposed the change Monday to a bill that allows the state to force condemned inmates to die in the electric chair when the lethal injection drugs aren't available.
The Democratic governor says the bill would mean that private contractors could make lethal injection drugs and protect their identity.
