For the first time in 26 years, a Florida police officer is standing trial for an on-duty killing — and one of his defenses will be the state's controversial "stand your ground" law.

Sex trafficking survivors and their advocates are divided on a measure aimed at identifying victims. The proposal submitted to the legislature requires hotel staff and law enforcement officers undergo training to recognize trafficking and for hotel workers to report potential cases.

Democratic Senator Lauren Book sponsored but later pulled a similar measure last year that would have allowed human trafficking victims to sue hotels. She pulled it after it came under fire from the hotel industry.

Savannah Parvu says Book’s bill would be a life saver.

Florida lawmakers have stripped language out of a sanctuary city bill that would have penalized local officials who favor such policies. But the measure’s sponsor,  Republican Senator and state GOP Chairman Joe Gruters, says its goal is still the same.
