Senate Bill 75 Signed One Step Closer to Ending Human Trafficking

Date: August 4, 2017
 
 News from State Senator
 
 Bryant Richardson
 
 Serving the 21st Senatorial District
                                           August 4,  2017
Senate Bill 75 Signed
One Step Closer to Ending Human Trafficking 
 
Senate Bill 75, a bill that updates Delaware's human trafficking crime to prohibit the same acts that are included in the federal Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015, was signed Tuesday by Governor Carney. Senator Richardson, one of the sponsors, spoke briefly before the signing. 

"One of the positive results of the session was that three bills passed that will enable our state to push hard against those with some of the most evil intentions in our society. Those who would enslave others," said Senator Richardson at the signing, mentioning HB 35, requiring licensing of massage parlors and HB 164, that creates the Human Trafficking Agency Coordinating Council. "Here is the message Governor Carney and our other legislators are sending to those engaged in the crime of human trafficking. Delaware is determined to stop your evil trade and to keep you from harming others."
 
Finally, before I turn this over to other legislators, I want to recognize my former legislative aide, Deanna Killen, and Yolanda Schlabach of Zoe Ministries for their work in preparing the bill and my current aide, Dawn Hopkins, for helping prepare for today's signing.
