Tim Scott: Could be ‘very hard’ to reach police reform deal by June deadline

Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), the lead Republican negotiator on police reform, says it will be “very hard” to reach a bipartisan deal by the end-of-June deadline if senators working on the issue can’t get a proposal down on paper in the next week or two.

“For us to get where we need to go, there’s going to have to be paper. If we don’t have paper in the next week or two, I think [it] would be very hard for us to make a deadline that is June 28 … [or] whatever the last week we’re here,” Scott told reporters Tuesday.

Scott told reporters before the Memorial Day recess that “it’s June or bust” for getting a deal on police reform, which eluded negotiators last year during the height of the Black Lives Matter protests.
