PA Human Trafficking Bill Headed for Passage!

From our friends at the Bucks County Women's Advocacy Coalition

Senate Bill 75, an important piece of anti-human trafficking legislation introduced by Senators Greenleaf and Dinniman passed out of the House Judiciary Committee this past Tuesday, June 10th. 

Despite some changes that the committee made to the bill, members of the anti-trafficking community are happy with the bill's progress and look forward to its consideration by the full House. 

The bill will next need to be reviewed by the House Appropriations Committee to be assigned a new fiscal note and will then go before the full House for a vote.

Please contact your State Representative and urge him/her to support Senate Bill 75 when it comes to the full House for a vote.
