When Gov. Jan Brewer signed HB2454 into law on April 22, she said, “This is a proud and significant day for Arizona, particularly for those who have been personally affected by the horrendous crime of human trafficking. There is much more work to be done in our fight to eliminate this atrocious modern-day slavery, but in signing this legislation and implementing critical measures, we take another good step forward in the right direction.”
