In late 2014, the legislature passed into law the Human Trafficking Commission Act which created the Michigan Human Trafficking Commission within the Department of Attorney General. In early 2015, the Governor made initial appointments of the 14 members and in early 2015 the Commission began their work. 

The Commission is comprised of 14 members; 5 of which are un-termed agency designees (Governor, Attorney General, Michigan State Police, Department of Health and Human Services, and Licensing and Regulatory Affairs) and the remaining 9 are 2-year term appointments.
