Reintroduction of Police Reform Bill
On behalf of J. Kippa Law, LLC | March 3, 2021
The bill titled the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act has been reintroduced to Congress, after failing to pass in the Senate last year. The bill touches on facets of police reform such as getting rid of qualified immunity, addressing racial profiling and abolishing no-knock warrants in federal drug cases. The proposed legislation would also include a federal ban of chokeholds, deeming them as a violation of civil rights. According to congressional aides, the House may vote on the bill this week.
