BACKGROUND

The ACHT was reestablished on July 29, 2022 as a requirement of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law 
(BIL) (P. L. 117-58).  Sec. 23020 of the BIL requires the ACHT to produce a triennial 
counter-trafficking report with recommendations for countering human trafficking, an assessment of 
best practices by transportation stakeholders, and human trafficking violations involving commercial 
motor vehicles. The committee was initially established as mandated by Sec. 5(a) 
of the 2018 Combating Human Trafficking in Commercial Vehicles Act (P.L. 115-99).  

The 2018-2020 ACHT submitted their final report on Combating Human Trafficking in the 
Transportation Sector on July 2, 2019.
