Durbin Statement On Police Reform Negotiations

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement regarding bipartisan police reform negotiations:


“Senator Booker, for nine months, exhausted every possible pathway to get to a bipartisan deal on policing reform.  Even after Senator Booker secured the support of policing groups such as FOP and IACP for our proposals, we could not win GOP support for the effort.  The challenge remains despite his extraordinary work.”
