An amendment increasing penalties for human trafficking crimes won approval, and will also impose a new tax on strip clubs and other adult entertainment businesses. The money will help pay for care for child victims of sexual exploitation. 

Georgians also voted “yes” on an amendment to dedicate the existing 5 percent sales tax on fireworks to funding trauma care at hospitals, firefighter equipment and training and other public safety efforts.

Hall County voters overwhelmingly approved both measures.
