House Judiciary panel to hold police brutality hearing next week

Source: Politico

The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on police brutality on June 10 as Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leaders push to have a police reform package on the floor by the end of the month.

House Democrats — led by the Congressional Black Caucus — are considering a number of measures to respond to the national outpouring of grief and anger following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed black man who died last week after a Minnesota police officer pinned his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. House Democrats are working with Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on the effort, according to Democratic aides.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is planning on a markup of the package by mid-June. The full House will consider the legislation on the floor when it returns to Washington in three weeks.

“The House Judiciary Committee is working very closely with the Congressional Black Caucus to determine the best path forward to address police brutality and racial inequality,” Nadler said in the statement announcing the hearing. “We are reviewing legislative proposals and will consider legislation in the coming weeks.”
