As lawmakers debate how to fund President Joe Biden’s infrastructure package, a wealth tax on billionaires has become a lightning rod in the halls of Congress and on evening cable news. In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law far-reaching reforms to a program intended to help parents of brain-damaged newborns. In New York, the city council announced an ambitious slate of legislation to reshape the NYPD and increase accountability at the nation’s largest police force. In a Baltimore County Police evidence room, an officer used decades-old DNA samples to solve a cold-case murder.
What do these seemingly disparate events have in common? ProPublica’s reporting helped spur all of these changes.
