Proposal in Anchorage to curb human trafficking upsets establishments

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The Anchorage Assembly may require restaurants, hotels, bars and adult establishments to join the fight against human trafficking.

    A proposed ordinance would require signs posted in visible places that refer people to call a phone number if they knew someone was being forced into prostitution or other kinds of work.

    The Alaska Hotel and Lodging Association says the ordinance is too broad and could make guests feel there is a problem at hotels or restaurants.
