BALTIMORE, Md. (AP) - Maryland lawmakers say they have written to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and asked him to rescind a request the Justice Department made to delay police reforms.
The letter was signed by U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, and congressmen Elijah Cummings, Dutch Ruppersberger and John Sarbanes, who said they object to the Justice Department's request.
The agency asked a Baltimore judge to postpone a hearing on a proposed agreement to overhaul the Baltimore Police Department.
