This is the December 11, 2019 hearing titled "Solving an Epidemic: Addressing Human Trafficking Around Major Events Like the Super Bowl and the Need for Cross-Jurisdictional Solutions," held before the House Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process of the Committee on Rules. From the opening statement of Donna E. Shalala: "We are here today, first and foremost, to learn. With the help of this expert panel, we will learn about the issue of human trafficking. Human trafficking is a worldwide issue, with millions of men, women, and children forced into labor, the sex trade, drug smuggling, and other forms of exploitation. Large sporting events that draw huge audiences of out-of-town visitors often serve as magnets for human trafficking, fueling a multibillion dollar criminal industry. As this vile industry grows, municipalities, counties, States and countries around the world have expanded their efforts to combat human trafficking by focusing on these events." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jean Bruggeman, Katherine Fernandez Rundle, JoNell Potter, Bill Woolf, and Bob Rodgers.
