Thursday, April 07, 2011  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement on the passage of Senate Bill 24, which enacts proposals from the Attorney General's Task Force on Human Trafficking:

"Human trafficking is a deplorable and growing practice in Texas and across the nation. I commend Sen. Van de Putte and Rep. Thompson for their continued work on this issue, and applaud the House and Senate for passing this measure, which sends a strong message that we will not tolerate human trafficking in Texas. I look forward to seeing this important legislation reach my desk, and hope HB 3000 and SB 1436, which increase penalties for those who participate in this insidious activity, will soon follow."
