Los Angeles voters will remember.

At the initial vote, Assemblymembers Ian Calderon, Marie Waldron and Richard Bloom voted in favor of the bill.

Republican Assemblymember Scott Wilk voted against the bill and Democrat Cheryl Brown abstained.

In disregard of the will of hundreds of adult performers — the group the bill purports to help — as revealed by signed petitions and a standing room only committee room, AB 1576 now moves on to the California assembly’s Appropriations Committee…

    What did I say about the squeaky wheel getting the AHF grease??

    It does look like this bill will meet its end, though, when it hits the Appropriations Committee, thanks to Assemblyman Gallo.

    The whole campaign against this bill has been yet another study in political ineptitude. I’m amazed it’s gotten this far. I agree that it will have tougher sledding in Appropriations and I’m still quite sure it can’t ever come to a floor vote, but because it got further this time than last, we can count on future attempts by other political showboats to jam something similar down our throats.

    Even a bad team can score when the other side doesn’t even take the field.
