Del. Mark Levine joins WFXR News to discuss police reform

Virginia News

(WFXR) — We’ve now passed one year since the death of George Floyd. In that time, state legislatures across the country proposed more than 3,000 bills addressing some form of police reform, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

However, only 250 bills — less than 10 percent — will be signed into law.

In Virginia, lawmakers proposed seven bills related to investigations and discipline, but only one passed and was signed by Gov. Ralph Northam.

Del. Mark Levine of the 45th District wrote one of the bills that died.

On Wednesday, May 26, Levine joined “Good Day Virginia” to discuss his bill, as well as other police reform bills and how they will impact the public.
