A bill awaiting action by Governor Parson would crackdown on drivers with a commercial vehicle license who are convicted of human trafficking.

State Representative Becky Ruth of eastern Missouri’s Festus sponsored the bill. She says drivers with a CDL license are often involved in sex trafficking.

 

 

The bill also penalizes people with a CDL that drive their commercial vehicles and are caught on drugs, alcohol, and other substances or having controlled substances.
