U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio), the Ranking Member on the Senate's Subcommittee on Contracting Oversight, today released the following statement on the Obama Administration's executive order to combat human trafficking in government contracting:

"I am still reviewing the Administration's executive order, but it seems to be in line with the proposal that Senator Blumenthal and I have been advancing for almost a year now to help end human trafficking. Our bill, which was passed by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee in June, would enhance existing protections against trafficking in connection with overseas government contracts. Although the overwhelming majority of U.S. contractors are honorable and law-abiding, a number of government reports have highlighted a need to better protect against exploitative labor practices that violate the values Americans hold dear. Our legislation would do just that."
