MO legislation would require sex trafficking awareness posters in some businesses

Lawmakers in Missouri have unanimously passed legislation that would require certain businesses to advertise the national human trafficking hotline. The bill would require businesses like truck stops, strip clubs, bus stations, airports, and some hotels to hand the posters in order to raise public awareness of the issue and increase victims’ access to help. The law would take effect in March of 2019 and businesses that do not comply may face infractions. The bill is awaiting approval from the governor.
