ADULT FILMS. CONDOMS. HEALTH REQUIREMENTS. INITIATIVE STATUTE.

 

OFFICIAL TITLE AND SUMMARY

PREPARED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

  • Requires performers in adult films to use condoms during filming of sexual intercourse.
  • Requires producers of adult films to pay for performer vaccinations, testing, and medical examinations related to sexually transmitted infections.
  • Requires producers of adult films to obtain state health license, and to post condom requirement at film sites.
  • Imposes liability on producers for violations, on certain distributors, on performers if they have a financial interest in the film involved, and on talent agents who knowingly refer performers to noncomplying producers.
  • Permits state, performers, or any state resident to enforce violations.

SUMMARY OF LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S ESTIMATE OF NET STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT FISCAL IMPACT:

  • Likely reduction of state and local tax revenues of several million dollars per year.
  • Increased state costs that could exceed $1 million annually to license and regulate adult film production and to enforce workplace health and safety rules. These costs would be offset to some extent by new fee revenue.
