Senator Ron Wyden hopes the House acts fast, and pushes his Bill to reduce sex trafficking to the President before the close of the lame duck session.  The Bill passed the Senate Thursday. It authorizes six block grants of about $2-million to locations where sex trafficking crime is high. Wyden says: “If one underage girl is selling herself on the streets of our community; that’s one girl too many.” The designated locations would create model programs to help girls out of sex slavery, providing shelter, counseling, legal services, food and other essentials. Wyden says Portland,  a hub for human trafficking, would be an ideal candidate for a block grant.
