The Missouri General Assembly has sent a bill to the governor's desk that includes a state version of the Federal Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA). HB 397, sponsored by Rep. Mary Elizabeth Coleman (R-Arnold), includes the language that will outlaw online solicitation of sex trafficking, creating a state prohibition that mirrors federal law. The FOSTA language was sponsored in the Missouri Senate by Sen. Bob Onder (R-St. Charles). The MCC testified in support of this state law change.
