The Republican-controlled Minnesota Senate has been debating police accountability measures drawn up following the death of George Floyd.

But with a more extensive slate advancing in the Democrat-dominated House, critics warned the Senate proposals don't go far enough.

An early vote Tuesday on a series of Democratic amendments split along party lines and set the stage for the rest of the debate.

The full House is expected to vote this week on a package from the People of Color and Indigenous Caucus.

It remains to be seen whether the chambers can agree on any changes during the special session.
