House Democrats to offer amendment to limit transfer of military-grade gear to police

A pair of Democratic lawmakers is planning to introduce Wednesday an amendment aimed at restricting the transfer of military-grade weapons to local police departments.

Reps. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) and Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) will offer the amendment when the House Armed Services Committee meets to consider its version of the annual defense policy bill, according to a copy of a letter supporting the amendment obtained exclusively by The Hill.

“This commonsense amendment, which has bipartisan support in Congress, would make our communities safer by getting weapons of war and military equipment off of our streets and out of our communities,” 90 organizations wrote in a letter to committee members Tuesday.
