Comstock Statement On Human Trafficking Legislation Passing The U.S. Senate
Washington, DC - Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) issued the following statement on the passage of human trafficking legislation that passed the United States Senate today:
“Today, the United States Senate finally found common ground on important human trafficking legislation similar to what passed in the House of Representatives in January,” said Congresswoman Comstock. “With this important passage, thousands of human trafficking victims are one step closer to finally getting the help they deserve. Back in January, I cosponsored eight bills which passed the House and offered a mix of legislative solutions to combat human trafficking – from encouraging states to establish safe harbor laws to making sure the U.S. and foreign countries are communicating about how to stop human trafficking. I look forward to voting for final passage and getting this human trafficking legislation to the President’s desk for his signature.”
In February, Congresswoman Comstock penned an op-ed on Human Trafficking and how it is a problem in Northern Virginia that can be found here.
