Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book introduced a bill (SB 692) that would close a loophole that has allowed hotels and public accommodations to escape fines even after repeatedly found not complying with an anti-human trafficking effort. More than 100 were found not complying six or more times.
These accommodations are required to post information about human trafficking and train employees to recognize the signs, according to a 2019 law. Since then, more than 14,000 citations were issued for establishments caught failing to do it. But not one has ever paid a fine for the violations, a Sun Sentinel series found.
