Governor Tim Walz, prompted by the Brooklyn Center officer killing of Daunte Wright, is demanding the legislature “finally hold some hearings on some of these reforms”:

“Things that are supported by both law enforcement and community members, things that we know that would reduce the chance of a routine traffic stop escalating into a loss of life.”

Maple Grove Republican Warren Limmer, who chairs a key committee in the state Senate, says last summer lawmakers passed “monumental reforms with strong bipartisan support to hold police officers accountable.” Limmer says those reforms are being implemented and police officers across Minnesota are receiving additional training.
