Human Trafficking Bill Passes
Bill prevents moving people in-state for the purpose of prostitution
ALASKA - The Alaska legislature has passed one of the items on its special session agenda – the human trafficking bill.
The bill passed Thursday with an amendment by Anchorage Democrat Senator Bill Wielechowski.
The legislation was asked for by Governor Sean Parnell and had wide support in both houses, but the language of the bill caused it to stall at the end of the regular session.
The house and senate committees also began taking on another special session must – the proposed change to Alaska's oil and gas taxes.
