Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA) released the following statement on the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, legislation that would remove critical resources from police departments nationwide.

“Law enforcement officers in Iowa and across this country put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. It’s reprehensible that House Democrats would bring forward legislation to defund police departments while relying on law enforcement to protect our Capitol from imminent threatsin a Chamber safeguarded by Capitol Police. 

“We can and should meaningfully address police misconduct and brutality without undermining—or defunding—the police. I will always stand with our brave law enforcement officers who risk it all to protect us and will work to ensure they have the resources they need to so.”
