ABSTRACT

H. Rept. 116-434, Part 1: George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020, Report Together with Minority Views, to Accompany H.R. 7120, June 19, 2020   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Purpose and Summary: "On June 10, 2020, George Floyd's brother, Philonise, told the Committee of the pain he felt watching the video of his brother being killed by a Minneapolis police officer. He gave voice to the pain that much of the Nation has felt over the last few weeks. He also spoke to the anger of knowing that George Floyd was only the latest in a much-too-long list of victims of police brutality--disproportionately people of color. He spoke to the frustration that, time and again, in the face of overwhelming evidence that dramatic reform is urgently needed, Congress has done very little. Mr. Floyd charged Congress with making sure that his brother's death would not be in vain, and he pleaded with Members of the Committee to turn this pain and anger into meaningful change. His words echoed the voices of millions of Americans who have taken to the streets in the last few weeks to demand justice--and to demand action. In advancing H.R. 7120, the 'George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020,' the most significant policing reform legislation in our Nation's history, the Committee now answers their call."
