LANSING (WKZO) -- The state House has passed a package of bills that will strengthen legal protections for human trafficking victims by improving restitution for victims. It will also simplify the language of the law. Additionally, the Child Welfare Act will now add human trafficking to the list of crimes that the DHS is required to report to law enforcement when there are suspicions of violations.

"This legislation enables us to ensure that victims will receive adequate support and restitution for their suffering," says Attorney General Bill Schuette . "On top of this, these bills allow us to hit human traffickers where it hurts-- their wallets."
