By granting legal immunity to individuals engaged in commercial sexual activity who report a crime that they are either a victim of or witness to, this legislation would have created more comprehensive occupational safety for sex workers. We testified in support of this bill, noting that such statutory protection would ensure that sex workers do not encounter legal consequences should they need to seek medical or law enforcement assistance throughout the course of their work. This legislation died in committee.
