House & Senate Resolutions - HCR 93/SCR 105: Internet TraffickingMarch/April 2018
Rep. Donna Mayfield & Sen. C.B. Embry: These two Concurrent Resolutions, one in the House and one the Senate, urge Congress to close the loophole in the Federal Communications Decency Act (FCDA) that gives immunity to online sites, such as “Backpage.com,” that knowingly and recklessly advertise sex to connect their “customers” with trafficking victims. (See related updated story below.) This common sense legislation is backed by numerous national groups as well as 51 Attorneys General who say their hands are tied by the FCDA.
