Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill on Tuesday strengthening penalties in the state for human trafficking.

Reynolds released the following statement:

“Human trafficking is a vile form of modern-day slavery and in Iowa, we won’t tolerate it. The bill signed (Tuesday) increases penalties for both labor and sex trafficking, and criminals found guilty of trafficking children under 18 will serve up to life in prison.”
