The U.S. House of Representatives just got enough votes to pass the George Floyd Justice In Policing Act to reform police practices and address institutional racism throughout America.

The vote was 236-181 along near party line, with Speaker Pelosi presiding.

Three Republicans Reps., Brian Fitz (PA), Will Hurd (TX) and Fred Upton (MI), joined Democrats in voting Yes.

The bill:

• Bans chokeholds
• Bans racial profiling
• Establishes a national registry
• Ends qualified immunity
• Restricts no-knock warrants
• Addresses the militarization of police departments

Now, the GOP-led Senate has to vote on it.
