We’re taking an important vote on the JUSTICE Act.

I’m proud to cosponsor this police reform bill, and applaud Senator Tim Scott for his leadership to improve police accountability while preserving the essential service that law enforcement provide.

We’re ready to work with Democrats on police reform. I hope they’re finally willing to come to the table.

A successful vote to proceed on the JUSTICE Act speaks volumes.

A vote against shows the American people that politics are more important than the people; talking points more important than change; and gridlock more important than solutions.

I hope Democrats will vote in favor of opening debate the JUSTICE Act. George Floyd and countless others deserve the Senate’s action and consideration of this bill.
