SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, March 4, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah Rep. Burgess Owens spoke out on Wednesday against U.S. House Bill H.R.1280, which went on to pass the House later that night.

U.S. H.R.1280, George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021, is a sweeping police reform bill, which next goes to the Senate.

Floyd was the Black man who died on May 25 of last year after a White officer of the Minneapolis Police Department knelt on his neck while arresting Floyd for the alleged use of a counterfeit bill.

All four of Utah’s representatives voted against the bill, which was decided along party lines.

Owens pinned a video of his brief speech to the top of his Twitter account. See the tweet and video below.
