    7  Trafficking, shall develop and submit a proposal to the Attorney
    8  General for the creation of a unified statewide data repository
    9  for anonymous human trafficking data. The proposal will house
   10  the data repository within the University of South Florida's
   11  Trafficking in Persons-Risk to Resilience Research Lab and will
   12  outline the need for a unified data repository to serve as a
   13  portal to collect and analyze anonymous statewide human
   14  trafficking data, to inform statewide efforts to combat human
   15  trafficking, and to better serve victims of human trafficking.
   16  The proposal should consider and recommend various funding
   17  mechanisms to establish and operate the data repository,
   18  including the potential for use of institutional and privately
   19  donated funds.
