AHF's Michael Weinstein with Assemblyperson Isadore Hall

State Assemblymember Isadore Hall III has re-introduced a bill that would make it mandatory to use condoms on adult film shoots throughout the state.

Hall, D-Compton D-AHF,  first introduced the bill last year but it died in the Appropriations Committee. The new bill, AB 1576, was read for the first time on Jan. 30 and will not be taken up in committee until March.

The law is similar to Measure B, the ballot initiative approved by voters in November 2012 that requires condom usage on adult film sets within Los Angeles County, and an ordinance passed by the Los Angeles City Council in January 2012.

The adult entertainment industry will lobby against the bill just as it did last year, said Diane Duke, chief executive of the Free Speech Coalition, the Canoga Park trade organization for the adult industry.

“When we go there again we will really need the assistance of everyone in the industry — our livelihood in California is at stake,” Duke said in a prepared statement.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation is a major backer of Hall’s bill as well as the Los Angeles county and city measures.

Attempts to reach a representative of AHF on the new bill were not successful.

Evidently Hall missed the memo regarding the alarming spike in new HIV cases in his own district. There are lives at stake there to be sure – those of the people who elected him. The lives of porn performers are protected by the most effective and comprehensive testing and monitoring system in the world. Instead of trying to wreck that system he should be doing his best to learn how it works and how a similar harm reduction model might save lives in his own community. But that doesn’t get him headlines and money from AHF, so why should he… Read more »
