L.A. Gives Preliminary OK to Adult Film Condom Mandate
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council voted 11-1 to give preliminary approval to an ordinance that would require adult film producers to provide and require actors to wear condoms during filming in order to receive permits to film in the city. Last month, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation collected more than 70,000 signatures to qualify such a proposal for a June ballot. The council's ordinance would supersede a June election on the measure, which would have cost the city more than $4 million. The council will vote next week on final approval of the measure. If approved, the ordinance would be the first of its kind in the U.S.
