Current Bill Summary

SB 68 - This act requires the Department of Public Safety to create a poster by January 1, 2018, that provides information regarding the national human trafficking resource center hotline. This act specifies the size of the poster and certain information that must be included.

Beginning March 1, 2018, the poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place in or near the bathrooms or near the entrance of certain types of establishments specified in the act.

The department must make the poster available for print on its public website.

Any owner or operator of an establishment required to post the human trafficking hotline notice who fails to comply with the requirement is subject to a written warning for the first violation and may be guilty of an infraction for any further violations.

This act is similar to HCS/HB 261 (2017) and substantially similar to HB 2561 (2016).
