"The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 was passed to protect survivors of modern-day slavery, women, children, and men who have been victims of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation/forced prostitution...However, the TVPA expired on Sept. 30 and many state and non-profit agencies have lost their funding and ability to prevent human trafficking and assist survivors. Please renew the TVPA and don't let human rights become a politicized issue."
Summary of Missouri House Bill 214, anti-human trafficking legislation passed in 2011.
"People convicted of human trafficking in Missouri will face longer maximum sentences. The legislation addresses convictions for trafficking for slavery, forced labor or sexual exploitation and abuse through forced labor.Those crimes now carry maximum sentences of 15 years in prison. Under the bill, possible sentences would range from five to 20 years. The measure also allows fines of up to $250,000.
The bill also authorizes the state Department of Public Safety to develop procedures for identifying trafficking victims and for educating officials about existing state and federal laws on the crime." --St. Louis Public Radio
