"George Floyd" police reform bill passed by the House of the United States

The United States House of Representatives, in which the Democratic party has a majority, has passed a police reform bill named after George Floyd. The chamber voted 236-181 in favor of the bill, but Donald Trump has already threatened to veto the legislation. If the legislation would be put into law, police officers could be held personally liable for lawsuits, ban no-knock warrants and stop the cash flow of the military surplus towards the police. The Republicans in the senate are also presenting a reform bill, though the senate one is far less reaching.
