Charlie BakerMassachusetts lawmakers on Tuesday approved a major police reform bill in the wake of protests over George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis that creates a new system for officer accountability, restricts no-knock warrants and bans chokeholds.

Leaders of the state House of Representatives and Senate called the legislation one of the most comprehensive reform packages to be adopted nationally in response to calls for racial justice in the aftermath of Floyd’s death in police custody in May.

Tuesday’s votes by the Democratic-led chambers followed efforts by other states and cities from coast to coast to adopt law enforcement reforms.

The Massachusetts legislation faced strong opposition from police unions. The House voted 92-67 to approve the legislation after the Senate voted 28-12 in favor.
