Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik voted against H.R. 1280 – Justice in Policing Act, and reemphasized her support of Senator Scott’s JUSTICE Act, which she cosponsored following the horrific death of George Floyd last year.

“The Democrats’ Justice in Policing Act poses a grave danger to law-abiding police officers, as it would eliminate qualified immunity protections, lower the standard for federal civil rights lawsuits, and limit access to necessary equipment during emergencies and natural disasters. Democrats rushed this bill to the House Floor without accepting any input from Republicans, expert testimony, or significant data.” said Congresswoman Stefanik.
