Legislative findings. Presently, there is no law requiring wine and beer establishments to post a notification regarding the offense of human trafficking. About 80 percent of trafficking victims are often forced into the sex-slave trade industry. In many of these cases, women and men are forced to be hosts or servers in establishments that serve alcohol in bars or entertainment clubs. Furthermore, outreach services are widely unknown to victims of trafficking. The purpose of this act is to promote the education of the federal toll free human trafficking referral hotlines. S 2. The alcoholic beverage control law is amended by adding a new section 65-e to read as follows: S 65-E. POSTING OF SIGNS RELATING TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING. 1. THE AUTHORITY SHALL PREPARE, PRINT AND DISTRIBUTE ACROSS THE STATE TO ANY PERSON, CORPORATION, PARTNERSHIP, OR OTHER BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENT WITH A LICENSE TO SELL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES FOR CONSUMPTION ON THE PREMISES AND ANY ESTABLISHMENT THAT PERMITS ANY PERSON TO APPEAR ON LICENSED PREMISES IN SUCH A MANNER OR ATTIRE AS TO EXPOSE TO VIEW ANY PORTION OF THE PUBIC AREA, ANUS, VULVA OR GENITALS, OR ANY SIMULATION THEREOF, OR PERMIT ANY FEMALE TO APPEAR IN SUCH A MANNER OR ATTIRE AS TO EXPOSE TO VIEW ANY PORTION OF THE BREAST BELOW THE TOP OF THE AREOLA, A SIGN OR POSTER MEETING THE FOLLOWING SPECIFICATIONS: EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
