executive order creates a national database to track police misconduct and mandates body-worn cameras. >> it also restricts practices like chokeholds and no-knock warrants. but the order applies mainly to federal officers and agencies and the white house can't for state or local police agencies to comply, though it is looking for ways to use federal funding as incentive. no substitute for legislation, but it is a necessary and long overdue critical step. >> for an ohio democrat joyce beatty, the chair of the congressional black caucus applauded the president's lost too many lives. and this is a step of great progress. but when asked about the president's efforts, missouri republican senator josh hawley said he thinks the president's priorities are misplaced. i think that we ought to be helping local law enforcement hire more cops. i'd like to see 100,000 new cops. >> on capitol hill, it appears
very unlikely that any piece of police reform legislation can get the 60 votes. it needs to clear the u.s. senate in washington. alexandra limon, oklahoma is the first u.s. state to outlaw abortion completely wa roe versus wade protection still stands. >> the governor there signed a measure that immediately prohibit all abortions with very few exceptions. the exceptions include rape or incest when the mother's life is at risk. it's the strictest abortion ban in the country. and the second shipment of baby formula has arrived from europe. a flight from germany delivered enough to fill a million 8 ounce bottles. members of congress want to know why the fda didn't react sooner after closing the abbott baby factory. lawmakers say they want to make sure any similar problems are avoided in the future. the fda says the baby formula factory should be ready to reopen in a couple of weeks. coming up
