5. i would have voted for it.

It is interesting that you proposed that in June and it failed to pass then.

Since then we had Ferguson and renewed attention on the behavior of the police and their excessive militarisation. Maybe the political climate is changing enough that your initiative may be reintroduced as an actual bill and get enough votes. Otherwise I fear that by the time the defense budget is up for renewal again, the outrage about ferguson will have died down and nothing will happen.

Keep up the good fight, representative Grayson, we need more politicians like you truly caring for the people.
