A bill that would protect human trafficking victims has passed the California Legislature and is now awaiting the governor’s signature.

AB 1735 would extend court-issued protective orders to victims of labor trafficking and adult victims of pimping for up to ten years.

The bill is part of a package of legislation introduced by Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, (R) San Luis Obispo, aimed at fighting human trafficking and protecting victims.

The governor has until September 30 to sign or veto the bill.
