AUSTIN, TX--- Representative Senfronia Thompson (Houston) released the following statement regarding the Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence's actions:
"The vote of the Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence today is exactly the type of action that is needed to fight human trafficking. It was a decisive and deliberate vote towards no longer tolerating this heinous crime in our state. I want to thank everyone on the committee and commend them for giving a voice to the victims of a crime that takes the very life from men, women, and children of all ages and walks of life.
