WASHINGTON - Democratic US Senator Cory Booker said on Sunday he believed a policing reform bill could pass the current Congress,

although he acknowledged it would be a challenge in the Republican-led House of Representatives.

There will be a tough fight.  "I'm excited about the belief that we can get a big comprehensive bill.

But can we do something? I believe we can," Booker said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"Booker led the last significant congressional talks on police reform that took place in 2021,

after a white Minneapolis police officer was found guilty of killing George Floyd, a black man, which sparked widespread protests.

That law would have made it easier for the Justice Department to bring charges related to police misconduct

and would have given more money for police training, among other measures.
