Sandoval to Sign Human Trafficking Bill

by ALEX POMPLIANO

Gov. Brian Sandoval has scheduled a public ceremony at the capitol to sign AB67 at 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and other supporters of the bill will join Sandoval as he signs AB67 into law. The bill establishes the crime of sex trafficking of children and adults, and makes victims eligible for state assistance and allows them to sue their traffickers. By doing so, the bill holds pimps accountable and protects the victims of sex trafficking.

Masto, a primary proponent of the bill, says bills passed this year by the Legislature will serve as a springboard for more anti-trafficking measures in future years.
