Back in June, the New York Senate introduced a sex work decriminalization bill. The bill, still without an eye-catching name, remains in committee. It has been there for several months due to its highly controversial nature. As it stands now, it covers everything from public health to property and domestic violence. If it passes, the bill will need to be water-tight in order to evade the bipartisan firing squad ready to shoot it down every time it comes to a vote. But regardless of its security, it would likely face a flurry of combatants based on so-called principles.
