Tomblin set to sign human trafficking bill
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is set to sign a bill that provides protections to victims of human trafficking.
A signing ceremony is set for this afternoon in the Governor's Reception Room in Charleston.
The bill targets forced prostitution and also allows lawsuits and compensation claims from victims of human trafficking.
Tomblin earlier vetoed the bill due to flawed language, and the Senate and House of Delegates clarified its language during an extended session last month.
