Greitens signs bill creating poster to stop human trafficking

(From Gov. Eric Greitens)

Today, Governor Greitens signed HB 1246, which directs the Department of Public Safety to create a poster that provides information regarding the National Human Trafficking Hotline. 

The law will take effect on August, 28, 2018 and will require entities located in areas most likely to see high levels of human trafficking to display the poster. These establishments will be required to display to poster starting March 1, 2019.

The Governor was joined by Rep. Cloria Brown (R-94), the original sponsor of the legislation as well as Rep. Patricia Pike (R-126) and Sen. Bob Onder (R-2), who carried the legislation this session, for the signing of this bill.
