Human Trafficking Bill

This week senators vote unanimously to pass an anti-human trafficking bill (HB 369). This bill was the longest attorney general confirmation process in three decades.

What is this new bill and what is it for? Mostly to inform the population about human trafficking and applies only to a certain type of businesses. Now places such as stip clubs, massage studios and hospitals will need to have signs up warning about human trafficking. The signs will provide phone numbers for people to reach if they are aware of someone being enslaved as prostitutes, farm workers or factory workers.

Is this bill going to be effective? Is it going to change people views on human trafficking in the United States?
