A Nebraska state lawmaker wants to regulate escort services and their employees in an effort to prevent human trafficking and prostitution.

Sen. Mark Christensen of Imperial proposed a bill on Thursday that would require escort agencies and their employees to obtain and carry permits to operate.

Current law doesn't require escorts to carry permits to work for an agency.

Christensen's bill would also add restrictions to what an escort is allowed to do with a customer. The escort and customers would not be allowed to be nude, touch or engage in sexual acts. The bill also would make it illegal for people under 18 years old to use an escort service.

Christensen has introduced similar bills multiple times during past sessions, but the legislation has stalled in committee.
