SPONSOR: Rules (Rosenthal L)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to directing the New York state interagency task force on human trafficking to investi- gate connections between social media and human trafficking   PURPOSE: To require the New York State interagency task force on human traffick- ing to investigate connections between social media and human traffick- ing.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This legislation amends the Social Services law to require the New York state interagency task force on human trafficking to investigate connections between social media and human trafficking.   JUSTIFICATION: Human trafficking is a global phenomenon that generates $150 billion in annual profits for the vile and wicked. In 2021, an estimated 25 million people were trafficked-75 percent of those victims being women and chil- dren. Social media is the most common tool that traffickers use to lure victims and the connections need to be further researched and understood so trafficking may be prevented proactively.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
