A bill committing money and resources to a fight against sex trafficking passed the Florida Legislature with a unanimous vote.
Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, said the sex trafficking legislation had been a priority for leaders in the Florida Legislature. “Victims of human trafficking all too often return to a life of exploitation at the hands of their traffickers,” Gaetz said. “This legislation will help these emotionally vulnerable children, looking for someone to love and care for them, break the cycle of physical and emotional abuse suffered at the hands of vicious criminals who engage in human trafficking.”
