The Justice in Policing Act (S. 3912/H.R. 7120) cleared the House Judiciary Committee in a party-line vote after a contentious 11-hour markup session. The NEA-supported bill would ban no-knock warrants, chokeholds like the one that killed George Floyd, racial and religious profiling, transferring military-grade equipment to state and local law enforcement, and it would also create a national database to help track police misconduct. The full House plans to vote on H.R. 7120 this Thursday.
