Senate Republicans Drafting Police Reform Bill

Senate Republicans are now working on legislation to address police reform, one of many nationwide changes mobilized by ongoing protests over racism and police brutality. A task force led by the Senate’s sole black Republican member, Tim Scott, sent GOP offices a draft of a proposed “Justice Act” focused on issues of reporting, accountability, training and community relations. It’s a big turnaround for the Senate, which not long ago was dismissive of acting on the issue. Democrats have unveiled their own proposal, which goes further in dictating specific changes, including banning chokeholds. Officials in states including New York, Florida and California already have moved to ban the use of neck restraints by police.
