From the opening statement of Frank Wolf: "The [2014 omnibus spending bill] directs the FBI to increase the amount of resources dedicated to human trafficking, improve coordination with other law enforcement agencies to better address trafficking and regularly report to Congress on what it is doing to fight trafficking. [...] The bill also provides nearly $14.25 million for grants to help victims of trafficking and $67 million for missing and exploited children programs. It also should be noted that in addition to the language on trafficking, the bill provides $417 million for the Office of Violence Against Women, which is higher than both the FY 2013 level and the president's 2014 budget request."
