John Frullo Hears Testimony in State Human Trafficking Committee

Texas Legislature

A Lubbock-area state representative has heard testimony regarding human trafficking.

As a member of the Joint Interim Committee to Study Human Trafficking, District 84 State Representative John Frullo took part in discussing the implementation of legislation related to human trafficking and strategies needed to remove the exploitation and selling of people within the State of Texas.

“Having a dialogue with those on the front lines of combating human trafficking is an important step in defeating this horrendous crime,” said Frullo. “Today we heard which policies are having a positive impact and what we can do better.”

Members of the Texas Human Trafficking Prevention Task Force presented ideas on best practices for public/private partnerships to provide services, and the need for safe houses and shelters for victims of human trafficking.

The Committee heard testimony from members of State agencies today on current procedures and services available to victims, and the effectiveness of current penalties for the conviction of a human trafficking crime.

This particular committee was created during the 82nd legislative session. The group will meet until they present their findings to the 83rd Legislature in January 2013.
