"Our industry is a long-time leading advocate in the prevention, identification and notification of human trafficking," said Lynn S. Mohrfeld, President and CEO, California Hotel & Lodging Association. "By working closely with Senator Atkins, we ensured our shared goal of consistently and effectively training our employees to spot and report incidents of human trafficking was met. We thank Governor Brown, Senator Atkins and her colleagues for working with our industry to craft a successful new law."
