Arizona State Senate Makes Greater Push to Protect Children


Tuesday, January 2, 2024                                                                                  

PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senator David Farnsworth is proud to announce the Senate Committee on Transportation and Technology has been changed to the Senate Committee on Transportation, Technology and Missing Children.


Senator Farnsworth is the chairman of the committee, which will hold 10 hearings throughout the legislative session. These hearings will provide the committee, comprised of Republican and Democrat legislators, with important information and testimony that will help craft legislation to fight this issue and protect Arizona's children.


"According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety's website, there are over 1,100 missing children in Arizona as of today," said Senator Farnsworth. "This is both disturbing and unacceptable. Protecting vulnerable children who are being kidnapped, murdered, or forced into the sex trafficking world needs to be a priority, especially when it's due to state negligence. We must create more oversight and accountability and work together to find ways to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children. I'm looking forward to having necessary and meaningful conversations about what can be done and using the information to enact change."


The first Senate Committee on Transportation, Technology and Missing Children hearing will be on January 9th.
