Uniform Prevention of and Remedies for Human Trafficking Act. There was no public testimony on this agenda item. Commissioners shared that it had received an analysis from the ULC comparing the uniform act with current Colorado human trafficking laws but had not had time to review all the information. According to the analysis memo, however, it appears that current Colorado law cannot be considered uniform and that our statutes may need some strengthening in some areas.
Commission consensus was to leave the act on the agenda to get input from the district attorneys council and other interested parties and legislators to see if there is a way to proceed forward with the act. Commissioner McGihon agreed to contact some district attorneys and Denver-based advocates regarding the act.
