Hawaii governor to sign human trafficking bills


Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie plans to sign two bills designed to prevent human trafficking.

Abercrombie’s office says the governor will sign a bill that puts children who are victims of sex and labor trafficking within the scope of the Child Protective Act. The bill also declares January as Human Trafficking Awareness month.

Another bill to be signed Monday requires certain employers to display posters that provide information related to human trafficking.

The posters will be required in massage parlors, establishments that provide nude dancers and some businesses with liquor licenses.
