New Hampshire Bulletin April 15, 2022
The New Hampshire Senate passed two bills protecting victims of human trafficking on Thursday. Both received bipartisan support and passed on the consent calendar without discussion.
The state’s current human trafficking statute is often used to provide this kind of protection to victims of human trafficking, according to Lyn Schollett, executive director of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence.
“This bill continues this legacy by striking the right balance between making sure human trafficking cases can be effectively prosecuted, while also recognizing the complex and nuanced reality experienced by human trafficking victims,” Schollett told lawmakers during a public hearing on the bill.
