Targeted Rewards for the Global Eradication of Human Trafficking or the TARGET Act

(Sec. 2) This bill expresses the sense of Congress that the Department of State's rewards program is a powerful tool in combating sophisticated international crime and that the State Department and federal law enforcement should work in concert to offer rewards that target human traffickers who prey on the most vulnerable people around the world.

(Sec. 3) The State Department Basic Authorities Act of 1956 is amended to include severe forms of trafficking in persons involving at least one jurisdiction outside of the United States in the definition of "transnational organized crime" for purposes of such program.
