Rep. Huffman to Propose Sex Trafficking Bills

SALEM, OR -- Human trafficking for sex or labor is an international problem. But it also happens in our own backyard, and that has prompted State Representative John Huffman (R-The Dalles) to introduce bills in the upcoming legislative session to fight the problem. "An affluent family in Sunriver had a slave and sex slave living in their home in Sunriver and you think, 'Oh my goodness. If this can happen in Sunriver it is certainly affecting every part of the state.'"

 

Huffman tells KBND News, "Each legislator only gets two bills and so my legislative partner on the trafficking work group is Kathleen Taylor out of the Milwaukie area. She’s committed one of her bills and I’ve committed one of mine  to help district attorneys and law enforcement be able to get the people that are perpetrating and causing the problems with trafficking." The February session is just over a month in length.
