Update: Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act
By Rachel L. West

This past summer I wrote about the Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act. Today I noticed in my stats that someone visited the blog looking for information about what happened to the legislation.
The bill died in the previous Congress. The Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Prevention Act of 2015 was introduced in the House (H.R. 1779/S. 262). It was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Patrick Leahy in January but a matching bill was not introduced in the House until April 14th. The House bill is being sponsored by Rep. John Yarmuth.
