On December 9, 2010, the U.S. Senate passed S. 2925, the “Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Deterrence and Victims Support Act of 2010.” The bill would authorize the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP) to award six one-year block grants of $2 million to $2.5 million each to “eligible entities” in 6 different regions of the United States to combat the sex trafficking of minors.
Now this critically needed legislation passes to the House where it must be adopted and passed by December 17. The Senate bill adopted by the Senate Judiciary Committee in June 2010 adopted 95% of the House version, H.R. 5575.
