"I think the challenge will be: We want more details about exactly which drug is going to be used," Dieter said.

Department of Correction spokeswoman Dina Tyler said the agency has not decided which drug it would likely use in lethal injections, but she said the department will disclose the drug and dosage.

Still, Rita Sklar, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, asked why the proposal would keep parts of the procedure in the dark, exempt from the state's public records laws.

"We just want to know, if you're going to kill somebody in the name of the people, how you're going to do it," Sklar said.
