As a member of an anti-trafficking group in Dubuque I want to encourage support for the reelection of Representative Chuck Isenhart. When he learned that a majority of human trafficking occurs in hotels/motels he sponsored a bill related to human trafficking training. The bill provided certification at lodging facilities who voluntarily accept training for their employees in human trafficking prevention. The bill also prohibits “the use of public funds to procure lodging, facilities, or services from non certified lodging providers.” As a result of his bill, the Iowa Department of Public Safety now offers free human trafficking training on its website for staff and personnel of lodging providers. Chuck Isenhart is a person who when told of a problem gets the job done. Isn’t that refreshing these days?
