WASHINGTON – Congressional leaders from several states, including New York, will unveil a new criminal justice reform bill Monday, addressing the ongoing protests for equal justice for black Americans.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D) believes it will go a long way to reforming police practice and bringing more racial justice.

“It’s called the justice in policing act. It’s going to be a broad, comprehensive measure, the strongest ever introduced, to bring more fairness and racial equality to police departments throughout the country. It has 3 major buckets: 1) accountability 2) transparency 3) training and policies,” Senator Schumer said.

The Congressional Black Caucus is also preparing a package of bills that includes a ban on chokeholds.
