Assembly Considers Sex Trafficking Bills' Cost

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Lawmakers quickly filed through the financial cost of three sex trafficking bills that focus on trafficking victims and expanding the state sex offender registry.

Two of the measures presented to the Assembly Ways and Means Committee Monday carried no fiscal notes while the third would cost the state an additional $250,000 over the next two years.

One bill increases penalties for holding minors against their will. It requires three extra employees at the state criminal repository which were included in the proposed budget before lawmakers.

The other efforts create a services plan and contingency account for victims. The second has no additional cost to the state, and the former comes with a $200,000 price tag for a new Department of Education employee to coordinate educating teachers on trafficking issues.
