Update on Human Trafficking bills

May 20, 2015 --

capitolBy Senate Minority Office,

Salem, OR – Senate Democrats rejected a pair of proposals to strengthen laws against child sex trafficking in Oregon. The two bills, SB 513 and SB 816, would have made patronizing a trafficked child a crime and increased the age limit for which a person engaging in child trafficking can be prosecuted.

“As the father of two daughters, I believe we must strengthen Oregon’s laws against sex trafficking and protect vulnerable women and children,” said Senator Tim Knopp (R-Bend). “These bills would have taken necessary steps toward protecting minors trapped in trafficking schemes and ensured those who traffic children or patronize a trafficked child are fully prosecuted.”
