L.A. Porn-Condom Panel Gets 90-Day Extension
LOS ANGELES — City officials have approved a 90-day extension to craft rules regulating porn productions within Los Angeles city limits, effectively delaying any type of enforcement until September.
The Los Angeles City Council adjourned its meeting on Wednesday without mentioning Agenda Item No. 10, which was a formal request to extend time to sort through the ordinance's complexities. Agenda Item No.10 was earlier approved without debate or comment.
The city's Adult Film Industry Working Group — a panel composing of nearly a dozen city, county and state officials — has met three times already to craft a master plan to implement the ordinance, which makes condoms mandatory for performers at on-location adult film productions.
But the panel has not had success crafting a report on the city’s ability to implement and enforce the Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Ordinance, which was passed by City Council and signed into law by Mayor Antonia Villaraigosa in January.
The ordinance currently isn't being enforced in the city, and it could take until early September for the panel to report back to the City Council over proposed rules to enforce it.
