I was looking to see what type of legislation the US has passed, or is
considering (in addition to the two House Resolutions that were recently
posted here) in trying to combat the trafficking of women and children into
the sex trade. I discovered 6 bills! Which at first glance is good that this
issue is getting the attention it deserves, but does anyone know how at the
end of the day, the submission of so many bills actually effects the type of
legislation that we can and should expect to see produced. There seems to be
some redundancy in the wording and the actual proposals in the bills. All
six of the bills make excellent proposals, yet none of them are entirely
comprehensive. Is common for the similar bills to be taken apart and pieced
together to make them more comprehensive? Can someone shed some light on
this for me? I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks,
Neeley Main
