Los Angeles County’s Measure B, which mandates condom use in adult films, is more than just about making sure porn performers wear prophylactics. As part of the requirements of the voter-passed measure, Wednesday the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to amend the City ordinance governing adult film permits to stipulate that only producers who can show proof of a public health permit will be issued filming permits.

Measure B Scam

A separate vote was also taken to instruct city officials to prepare a motion to adopt the provisions in Measure B, notes City News Service.

Supporters of Measure B, specifically the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) who spearheaded the measure, are pleased with the results of this week’s vote and the amendment.

From a news release issued by AHF: ”

We thank City Council for their unanimous vote to formally tie the distribution of adult film permits issued by the City to those producers who also show proof of holding a County public health permit, as required under County Measure B,” said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “Today’s vote directs the City Attorney to amend its own adult film permitting ordinance and prepare a new ordinance for a final vote in the future, although an exact time was not stipulated. A separate vote was also taken to instruct City officials to prepare a motion to adopt the provisions in County Measure B, the condoms in porn measure. These actions bring us a step closer to getting the City and County measures fully up and running and should go a long way improve health and safety among adult film performers.”

Just one more defendent to be added to the lawsuit, I guess.

Perhaps the opposite, Anthony. The City could never figure out how to enforce its own measure, even after spending time and money to do so, so essentially it has bunted to the County. Should the County measure (Measure B) be invalidated as over-broad or under-inclusive, etc etc, it would also be invalidated and unenforceable by the City. At that point, the only question remaining would be: does the political will exist to amend the city regulation back to the terms of the original version (much of which is strikingly similar to the County law) in HOPES that it would survive… Read more »
