Movement in the Senate on anti-trafficking legislation!

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.
