 Introduced  by  M. of A. CRUZ -- read once and referred to the Committee
   on Economic Development
 
 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
 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 FEDERAL LAW.  IF  YOU
 OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS A VICTIM OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING, YOU ARE ENCOURAGED
 EITHER  TO CALL THE NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING RESOURCE CENTER TOLL FREE
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.

   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. For the past several years, the toll-
 free telephone number of the National Human Trafficking hotline has been
 posted  on  a  New  York  state agency website and those locations where
 victims may be present, including adult or sexually-oriented businesses,
 have been encouraged to voluntarily  display  information  posters.  The
 Hotline's 2019 data report shows that bars and strip clubs remain one of
 the  top three locations where sex and labor trafficking occurs. Most of
 these trafficking victims are young women, the majority of  whom  arrive
 from  other  countries.  In order to combat this scourge, numerous other
 states have now made it a requirement for alcoholic  beverage  licensees
 that operate sexually-oriented establishments to post information on how
 to  call,  text or otherwise contact the hotline. This bill will enhance
 New York state's efforts to fight sex and labor trafficking.
   § 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 REQUIRE ANY PERSON WITH  A  LICENSE  TO  SELL  ALCOHOLIC
 BEVERAGES  FOR  CONSUMPTION  ON  THE PREMISES WHO INDICATED, PURSUANT TO
