Kansas AG to help lead anti-trafficking group


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has been named by his colleagues across the country as the vice chairman of their national Human Trafficking Committee.

The Kansas Republican successfully pushed legislation in 2013 aimed at strengthening state laws against human trafficking and providing better support for victims.

The committee of the National Association of Attorneys General studies anti-human trafficking efforts throughout the country to share best practices.

Schmidt also will serve as vice chairman for the group’s Midwest region.

The national association had its summer meeting this week on Mackinac Island, Michigan.
