Iowa News

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Legislature has swiftly passed a bill that responds to the demands of protesters marching against racial injustice.

The bill includes restrictions on officers using chokeholds and making it more difficult for problem officers to move to other departments.

The bill surfaced Thursday and was debated simultaneously in the House and Senate before passing both chambers unanimously.

Gov. Kim Reynolds watched the debate and vote in the House and then watched the Senate finish debate and vote.
