All but one Bronx City Council member voted to override mayor’s veto of police transparency bill

On Tuesday, Jan. 30, City council members representing the Bronx voted overwhelmingly to override Mayor Eric Adams’ veto of the police transparency bill commonly known as the How Many Stops Act. 

Adams strongly opposed the bill, claiming that officers would be required to do paperwork for every interaction, no matter how minor, adding hours to their workload. In recent weeks, the debate intensified as Adams and the council both accused each other of spreading misinformation about the bill.
