Among the most recent set of measures Governor Rick Scott has approved is a newly signed bill meant to enhance Florida’s anti-human trafficking efforts.

The Historic Old Capitol glowed a bright purple Tuesday in honor of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.

A bill aimed at toughening Florida’s human trafficking laws will become law in a few months, following Governor Rick Scott’s signing. It increases the penalties for soliciting another for prostitution.
