We also have a provision in the bill that would allow for the
streamlining of criminal investigations of human trafficking.
Under current law, State and local law enforcement may obtain a
wiretap warrant in State court upon showing that the investigation may
provide evidence of murder, kidnapping, gambling, robbery, bribery,
extortion or dealing with narcotic drugs, including marijuana or other
dangerous drugs, or other crimes dangerous to life, limb or property
and punishable by imprisonment for more than 1 year.
What we would do here is provide additional tools for law enforcement
to conduct lawful wiretaps in order to get evidence important to
convicting the perpetrators of these terrible crimes.
