CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Camille Naaktgeboren says she carried a backpack with her during her 12 years as a trafficking victim in case she ever managed to escape.

She told members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee Wednesday that she may have escaped sooner if the victim services components of AB338 had been in place earlier.

Republican Assemblyman John Hambrick of Las Vegas presented the bill two days before bills must clear committee.

The measure establishes a legal framework for officials to recognize victims of trafficking, and requires the state to create an action plan for meeting their needs.

It also requires certain locations particularly susceptible to trafficking to post fliers with information about the National Human Trafficking Hotline. That hotline connects callers with appropriate local authorities.
