Editor's Note: Senator Bob Huff released the following announcement on Friday, Feb. 7.
Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) previews new legislation in his Capitol Comment for the week of Feb. 3, 2014.
The bi-partisan legislative preview involves a number of Senate and Assembly offices and focuses on the problem of childhood sex trafficking. Los Angeles County Supervisors call sex trafficking one of the biggest threats to California, which is why Chairman Don Knabe traveled from Los Angeles to Sacramento to take part in the legislative introduction of a number of bills.
Senator Huff says the new legislation will focus on increasing penalties for gangs who lure minors into a life of prostitution, plus the johns who solicit services from these minors.
Senator Huff serves as the Senate Republican Leader and represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Follow Senator Huff on Twitter @bobhuff99.
