The group which authored the measure to require condoms in adult film shoots in Los Angeles County, approved by county voters on Tuesday, is now seeking to take its effort statewide.
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation said Thursday it is seeking a state lawmaker to carry a bill that would broaden the power of the state and local governments to enforce health codes requiring condom use on porn sets.
The foundation was the force behind Measure B, which passed with 56 percent of county voter support on Tuesday.
"An overwhelming majority of voters in Los Angeles spoke out in support of safer sex practices in the adult film industry through their votes for Measure B on Tuesday," said Michael Weinstein, president of the foundation, in a written statement.
"Unlike some politicians or editorial writers, it seems the voters were not squeamish about this issue, seeing this as a means to protect the health and safety of performers working in the industry."
The adult film industry is planning to challenge Measure B in court, arguing it is a violation of free speech and will chase jobs and economic activity out of Los Angeles.
