“In a year where the Legislature and I have focused heavily on protecting California’s film industry, it is unfortunate that some legislators don’t believe that protection should include keeping California actors safe while they are at work.”
SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Isadore Hall, III (D – Los Angeles) today thanked California Governor Jerry Brown and his administration for their swift response in removing several items found for sale at the California State Fair bearing the image of the Confederate flag.
The Confederate Flag is a symbol of racism, exclusion, oppression and violence towards many Americans. Its symbolism and history is directly linked to the enslavement, torture and murder of millions of Americans through the mid-19th Century. Even today, its public display is designed only to instill fear, intimidation and a direct threat of violence towards others.

After the hearing, Hall released the following statement:

SACRAMENTO, CA – Legislation by Assemblymember Isadore Hall, III (D – Los Angeles) to require condoms or other personal protective equipment in California produced adult films and mandatory employer paid STD testing of adult film actors was approved today by the California State Assembly. AB 1576 passed with bipartisan support on a vote of 47 to 15.
The adult film industry, given the type of work required, disproportionately exposes actors, and particularly women, to a range of health and safety risks. The industry has been largely self-regulated and has done an inadequate job of protecting its employees from disease infection.
