This bill addressed the issues surrounding human trafficking in the State of South Carolina. As in other states, tougher laws are needed in South Carolina to prosecute traffickers, train law enforcement and assist victims in their recovery.  H. 3757 would address these issues if passed, and unlike in most states, this bill calls for asset forfeiture.  The traffickers pay the bill.  But ! this bill needs  swift support and action from the citizens of South Carolina.
