US House passes police reform bill named for George Floyd
It’s coming in the form of a bill that was just passed by the U.S. House -- and it’s named after George Floyd. After months of protests over the last summer, Americans across the country said that the killing of George Floyd -- a Black Minnesota man -- was a wake up call for the nation. Lawrence says that members of Congress couldn’t ignore what happened to George Floyd and the cultural aftermath. “The George Floyd (Justice in Policing Act) is not a ‘Black bill,’ it’s not just for African Americans,” Lawrence said. We wanted body worn cameras,” Craig said.
