Bill Analysis

SB 72 would establish a human trafficking prevention coordinating council to develop and implement a five-year plan for preventing human trafficking. The council would file an annual report with recommendations to the Legislature with the goals of eliminating redundancy, ensuring best practices, collecting data on the efficacy of the existing programs, and coordinating the expenditure of state funds.
