News Re: Prosecution Shift for Prostitution

Just got an update from Olympia on the teenage prostitution bill that news intern Jonah slogged about.
Senator Kohl-Welles (D-36, Seattle) reports that the bill, which equates patronizing a teenage prostitute with sexual abuse of a minor (while also trying to change the focus of law enforcement, by putting the spotlight on johns), made it out of Rules.
It’s now in play on the House floor.
