State Senator Patrick Gallivan says he supports a new law signed recently by Governor Andrew Cuomo to help victims of human trafficking, but wants the government to do more.
He wants the legislature to pass a more comprehensive bill approved by the state Senate.
State Sen. Patrick M. Gallivan (R-Elma) says a new state law will protect young victims of human trafficking by ensuring they receive the help and treatment they need.
Gallivan says he supports the law (S.6804/A.8749-A) signed this week by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, but says a more comprehensive bill passed by the Senate should also become law.
