Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka said Monday there is a tentative agreement on the policing bill.

Minnesota legislative leaders said Monday they've reached the framework for an agreement on a series of police accountability proposals after two months of touch-and-go negotiations following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

The tentative deal on policing includes a ban on the use of chokeholds and warrior-style training for officers across the state, as well as changes in police arbitration and the creation of a new advisory council within the state's officer licensing and standards board, said Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-East Gull Lake.

House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, DFL-Golden Valley, said a deal was very close to being finalized.
