SB3108

  • martinez 053018CHICAGO — All victims of human trafficking will have additional protection under a new law passed by Assistant Majority Leader Iris Y. Martinez (D-Chicago).

    The law amends the Predator Accountability Act by expanding the protections available to sex trafficking victims to victims of involuntary servitude and labor trafficking.

    “The sex trafficking trade is horrible, there are other forms of forced labor,” Martinez said. “We must protect anyone who is made to work against their will.”

  • morrison ethics 030116SPRINGFIELD – Two proposals that would increase the level of accountability among Illinois lawmakers were recently introduced by State Senator Julie Morrison (D - Deerfield).

    Senate Bill 3107 would require state legislators to publicly disclose potential conflicts of interest before casting a vote on any legislation. While some lawmakers currently make conflict of interest disclosures public, the practice is not required under state law.

    “The public has a right to know when lawmakers have a conflict of interest,” Morrison said.
