NBA Statement on Introduction of Anti-Brothel Bill
(Carson City, Nevada) – In response to the introduction of Senate Bill 413, co-sponsored by Sens. Joe Hardy and Patricia Spearman, to outlaw legal brothels statewide in Nevada the Nevada Brothel Association issued the following statement…
“We have anticipated the introduction of this bill for several months now, so it comes as no surprise and we will actively oppose its passage.
“We find it unfortunate that Sens. Hardy and Spearman have decided to focus their attention on legal brothels where the public’s health and workers’ safety have been protected for almost 50 years now, and where the women who work there do so voluntarily and only after passing a vigorous FBI background check.
“We suggest that the Legislature’s time would better be spent concentrating on the real problem: Illegal prostitution in the major metropolitan areas of Las Vegas and Reno where sexually transmitted diseases are common and where the horror of forced sex trafficking – including of underage girls – regularly occurs.”
