Dems Pass Sweeping Police Reform Bill, And It Has Serious Implications

The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act was passed and critics say it will essentially “defund the police,” according to Town Hall.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the legislation “will address systemic racism, curb police brutality and save lives.”

“The unfunded mandates in their bill, H.R. 1280, would cost police departments hundreds of millions of dollars—the equivalent of taking 3,000 cops or more off the streets,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted.

“Our men and women in uniform deserve better.”

Jim Jordan and Jason Smith wrote a letter to the director of the Congressional Budget Office.

“It is our understanding that H.R. 1280 contains provisions that significantly violate the current Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) threshold of $85 million,” the letter states. “It is further our understanding that these provisions may in fact result in additional costs to state, local, and tribal governments totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars which would deprive these localities of the resources needed to provide adequate policing and public safety services in their communities.”

From Town Hall:

Democrats also rejected an amendment by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) that recognizes law enforcement officers and “condemns calls to ‘defund,’ ‘disband,’ ‘dismantle,’ or ‘abolish’ the police.”
