( – On Tuesday, Ohio Sen. JD Vance (R) will force a vote in the Senate for a resolution that would overturn the District of Columbia’s police accountability law, which according to Republican lawmakers has been part of the reason why crime in the nation’s capital has increased.

Previously the Senate and House Republicans in March were successful in overturning a new D.C. sentencing reform law which would have reduced the sentencing for several crimes including carjacking and robbery. President Biden also signed the resolution despite his administration expressing that they were against it.

Republicans are now focusing on D.C.’s new police accountability law, which would extend policing reforms that were put in place temporarily following the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. The accountability law completely bans chokeholds, discourages police pursuits, and would make camera footage more widely available to the public. Police would also be required to de-escalate.

Vance in a statement claimed that Congress needed to use its constitutional authority to ensure that those living in the nation’s capital city were safe. He added that it was a “disgrace” that the U.S. had become so dangerous because far-left activists have been “calling the shots.” He proceeded to urge all other Congress members to support his disapproval motion.

On Monday, Vance revealed that he has not yet tried to win bipartisan support for his motion, but that he was hoping he would be able to. All Senate Republicans are expected to vote in favor of the motion which will first need to be discharged from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
