Having this authority returned will allow local governments to prevent <br />businesses operating under the auspices of massage therapy from engaging in prostitution and <br />human trafficking. <br />For these reasons, the City of San Luis Obispo supports AB 1147. <br />Sincerely, <br />' - — )-VU� <br />an Marx <br />Mayor <br />cc: City Council <br />Police Chief <br />Senator Bill Morning, fax 916-445-8081 <br />Assembly Member Katcho Achadjian, fax 916-319-2135 <br />David Mullinax, League of California Cities, dmullinax(c&cacities.or <br />Meg Desmond, League of California Cities, mdesmond(a), <br />
