An important issue and serious problem and should be a priority for all governments at all levels.

I am pleased to see Florida up top where I live now as well as Massachusetts where I was born and raised. I can see the Live Free or Die State of New Hampshire is lagging behind terribly. I guess you are free to do what you want there, traffic humans and let them die.

I was surprised to see the state of Califonia at the top of the list.

I was, at first, under the idea that with the influx of many diverse cultures, populations in California that
the state might actually be in the lower middle. To my surprise, CA had a tier 1 rating with a plus 7. Looks
like CA is keeping an eye on human trafficking situations.

Ty, Nancy.

glad more states are getting up to speed on this--wish more wouldn't keep punishing the victims by charging them with prostitution

Human trafficking is a very serious situation that definitely needs more awareness.

This report gives us very valuable information. With this is information we can make quite specific proposals for new legistation when contacting our state representatives and senators. Thanks for the link.
