State lawmakers will be getting back to work today passing a package of law enforcement reform bills. Monday, the Legislature approved a measure that would ban the use of choke holds by police. Other items on their agenda include a repeal of a portion of the state Civil Rights Law called "50-a," which prevents the public from having access to the disciplinary records of officers.

Also, any police killings of unarmed people would be reviewed by the state Attorney General's office instead of a local district attorney.

Governor Cuomo said yesterday he'll sign the reform measures once they clear the Senate and Assembly.
