Introduced  by  Sen.  BAILEY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Investigations and Govern-
  ment Operations

AN ACT to amend the alcoholic  beverage  control  law,  in  relation  to
  promoting  the  education  of  the  human  trafficking information and
  referral hotlines to assist individuals from becoming or freeing them-
  selves from any act of severe forms of sex trafficking

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. 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.
  §  2.  The  alcoholic  beverage control law is amended by adding a new
section 65-e to read as follows:
  § 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:
  (A)  CONSPICUOUS  LETTERING  STATING  "NOTICE  ON  HUMAN  TRAFFICKING:
OBTAINING  FORCED  LABOR OR SERVICE IS A CRIME UNDER THE FEDERAL GOVERN-
MENT.  IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS A VICTIM OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING,  YOU
ARE  ENCOURAGED  EITHER  TO CALL THE NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING RESOURCE
