SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes and his counterparts across the country are calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a law aimed at reducing child trafficking.

Reyes’s office says the legislation pending in the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee would require websites offering adult services to verify those posting advertisements and the age of those appearing in the ads.

Reyes says in a statement that human traffickers use the Internet to offer children for sex.

He and 51 other attorneys general from U.S. states and territories have signed a letter urging lawmakers to pass the legislation.
