YAY! The bill to mandate condoms in porn and more STD testing has moved forward one more step in the California Senate.
[Herald Online] — California Assembly Bill 1576, a landmark bill that clarifies and strengthens state worker safety laws requiring condoms in all adult films made statewide in California, cleared the state Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee earlier today in a 3 to 1 to 1 vote and will now move on to the Senate Appropriations Committee. Assemblymember Isadore Hall, III (D-Los Angeles) from California’s 64th Assembly District, authored the bill, which he introduced in mid-February.
Senate Labor Committee members Ben Hueso (D, San Diego, 40th District, Chair), Holly Mitchell (D, Los Angeles, 26th District) and Alex Padilla (D, Pacoima, 20th District) voted in support of the bill with Mark Leno (D, San Francisco, 11th District) voting against the bill, and Mark Wyland (R, Carlsbad, 38th District, Vice Chair) abstaining.
“Today, the Members of the Senate Labor & Industrial Relations Committee overwhelmingly saw beyond the adult film industry’s flaccid misinformation campaign and took decisive action to protect these actors in the workplace,” said Assemblymember Isadore Hall, III in a statement. “I want to thank the many actors that testified in support of AB 1576, especially Ms. Sofia Delgado, who courageously came forward today to announce that she was the third of five adult film actors to have contracted HIV in 2013. She, along with former actors Cameron Bay, Rod Daily and others have shown an incredible amount of character to be able to share their very personal challenges in hopes of saving the lives of others.”
