President Joe Biden plans to roll out executive actions on police reform in honor of Black History Month this February, three sources familiar with the matter told NBC News, despite the fact that most black Americans polled support a police presence in their communities.

The executive legislation would come shortly after the fight by President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Senate Democrats to pass voting rights legislation. 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki during a briefing Thursday said: "We’re very supportive of the efforts to negotiate police reform on a bipartisan level. Obviously, that didn’t move forward as we would have hoped."

The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act passed the House in the previous Congress but stalled in the Senate. The act was reintroduced in the current Congress and passed again in the House along party lines. The bill stalled in the Senate in September 2021.
