  • Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt are preparing to announce legislative proposals to fight human trafficking in the state.
    The Republican officials scheduled a news conference Friday morning to outline their plans.
    Schmidt's office is the lead entity of the Kansas Human Trafficking Advisory Board, which was created three years ago to study the problems of forced labor and sex trafficking. The board includes law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, victims of human trafficking and others with expertise in the field.
