Senate Votes 31-9 to Pass Reform, House Finalizes on Tuesday
After a long day of waiting, the Senate quickly voted down several amendments and passed what they called a compromise police teform package. Making minor concessions to assure the Governors signature, the Senate voted 31-9 and sent the bill to the House for action tomorrow. The bill still contains a civilian majority commission and calls for the MPTC and the new commission to jointly promulgate rules on use of force. We had been advocating for thye MPTC to set the standards. Nothing in the legislation says what happens if they disagree.

We worked tirelessly until the last minutes in hopes of procedurally delaying action. In the end, we could not stop this freight train. 
We will continue our work today in the House.
