McConnell Sets Date For Vote On GOP Police Reform Bill
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed cloture Monday on the Republican police reform legislation, setting an official date for the vote.
McConnell said the Senate will vote on the GOP’s police reform bill, which will need 60 votes in order to pass. Republicans would need seven or more Democrats to vote with them in order for the legislation to advance. Senate Republicans released their police reform legislation Wednesday in response to the killing of George Floyd and the ongoing protests.
