California Aims To Decriminalize Sex Work - Approved Bill Heads To Newsom


An anti-loitering bill focusing on decriminalizing sex work is heading to Governor Newsom for approval. Senate Bill 357 would rescind the misdemeanor law against loitering in public for the purpose of engaging in prostitution. Advocates for the measure say the current system allows law enforcement to target minorities and the practice leads to unsafe work conditions. Opponents say the bill would remove a crucial tool to stop sex trafficking and would hamstring victim outreach efforts. Newsom has 12 days to sign or veto the bill.
