On Friday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed a bill that bans the controversial Police chokehold method. On the same day, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a similar bill which was passed unanimously by the Iowa Legislature. Californian Gov. Gavin Newsom also called for the ban of the chokehold, which he called "stranglehold", as it had "no place any longer in 21st-century practices and policing".
