The House and Senate have passed House Bill 359 unanimously. This bill, sponsored by Representative Kim Williams and Senator Nicole Poore, adds victims of human trafficking to the Address Confidentiality Act.
Under this program, certain crime victims are provided a substitute address by the Department of Justice so as to protect the participant’s actual address from public disclosure.
Senator Nicole Poore: “Victims of human trafficking deserve to be believed, supported, and protected by our government. House Bill 359 will do just that[.] I thank my colleague in the House, Kim Williams, for her diligent work and collaboration with me and others to pass meaningful legislation that helps survivors of human trafficking.”
