1834-03-08, On cost of returning fugitives
Senate No. 54 On March 8, 1834, the Governor sent a message to the Legislature asking for consideration of an issue. The U.S. Constitution allowed
for the extradition of felons between states. The Commonwealth had a supportive law, but Davis thought it needed work. He wished for better
evidence that the felon called for was likely to be guilty of the alleged crime. What about the issue of the felon who had committed a minor crime in the
Commonwealth, but a major crime in another state or vice versa? Which state should have precedence. Davis suggested the Attorney General investigate
all extradition requests and offer an opinion. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   The Constitution of the United States provides that fugitives from justice, who have committed crime in one state and fled into another, shall, upon demand made by the executive of the state in which the crime has been committed, be delivered up.
