Status of the Legislation

The New York State Senate and State Assembly passed a comprehensive package of bills aimed at protecting victims of Sex Slave Trafficking. The Assembly on March 16 passed a six-point package of anti-human-trafficking legislation splitting off a bill, A.506, from the Women's Equality Agenda that passed separately in 2013 and 2014 by the Senate but passed as a point of the omnibus women's equality bill package by the Assembly.

The bills are now waiting for the Governor's Signature. Information on Sex Slave Trafficking legislation from articles and the State Assembly website:
