A Battle Over The Money On Beacon Hill

A proposal in the state senate calls  to divert money from a fund to support horse racing to help  sex-trafficking victims.  

Supporters of the state budget amendment say  the Victims of Human Trafficking Trust Fund only has 16-thousand dollars  while the Horse Race Development Fund has 13 million.  

The money for  the victims fund would also pay for police training and a "johns school"  for people convicted of buying sex.  

A competing proposal is to take  15-million from the horse racing fund to help balance the budget.
