Large retailers and manufacturers that do business in California will have to start publicly stating what they do to prevent human trafficking in their supply chains. That's because of legislation written by Democratic Senate Leader Darrell Steinberg and signed by the Governor. Steinberg says the new requirement will ensure items sold in California aren't made using forced labor.
"Just that information in and of itself I think will be very, very valuable and I think it will be a deterrent, it will make people aware and I think it'll make a huge impact."
Companies will have to start disclosing that information on their websites in 2012.
