US Senator working on bill to combat human trafficking

(From Our Washington Newsroom) - A Republican US Senator from Ohio has been working on a bill to stop online businesses from turning a blind eye to human trafficking.

Sen. Portman said, “We were getting more and more support for this legislation. Wanted to be sure that it did address legitimate concerns regarding Internet freedom... I think we've accomplished that.”

The online industry has now decided it will stop fighting the effort.
