House Session - June 25, 2020

The House debated and approved the rule governing six bills, including the Democratic police reform bill. Proxy voting was allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Representative Francis Rooney (R-FL), who was unable to vote in person, was the first Republican to vote by proxy, designating his proxy vote to Representative Don Beyer (D-VA). Later, members passed the police reform bill, with Representatives Brian Fitzpatrick (PA), Will Hurd (TX) and Fred Upton (MI) the only Republicans to vote "yes." No amendments were allowed. The bill was written in response to Mr. Floyd's death while in custody of Minneapolis police in May 2020. The measure seeks to change police department practices across the nation, ending racial profiling and the use of excessive force. It would also make police officers more accountable for the use of deadly force. The Senate was working on its own bill to address the issue.
