In efforts to move the Reauthorization of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPRA) through Congress, the bill has been hotlined- to hotline a bill is to prepare it for unanimous consent in the Senate. Without any objections, the Senate can pass a bill very quickly in the closing minutes of a session. This is how the TVPRA has passed in past years and the quickest way to get it to the House for a vote before this Congress ends.
Senate Democrats have completed this process, but the bill is still being held by Senate Republicans. If you live in a state with a Republican Senator we are asking you to call today and ask that they affirm their support of the TVPRA.
