Florida Lawmakers Meet For Discussion About Human Trafficking

A roundtable discussion in Miami looks at human trafficking and its impact on the Sunshine State.

Florida is one of the nation's busiest spots for human trafficking and lawmakers are trying to get ahead of the problem.

State Senator Manny Diaz Jr says hearing from the people on the front lines helps lawmakers better understand what's going on. He says their efforts led to a decrease in human trafficking activity over the last two Super Bowl weekends, in Miami and Tampa.
