   15  use on a consistent basis, and make recommendations on how to

   19  system to do so without undue delay.

   35  with law enforcement agencies, survivors of human trafficking,
   36  industry representatives, tourism representatives, and other
   37  interested parties. The institute also must conduct research to
   38  determine the reduction in recidivism attributable to the
   39  education of the harms of human trafficking for first-time
   40  offenders.
   41         (f) The direct-support organization shall develop training
   42  for firesafety
