SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Assembly Bill 332 will be heard for a second time at the state capitol on Wednesday.

The Labor and Employment committee will hear AB 332 as the third item on a slate of 16. The hearing will stream over the Internet tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. here.

The committee is all-male panel composed of seven state assembly members: Roger Hernandez, Mike Morrell, Luis A. Alejo, Ed Chau, Jimmy Gomez, Jeff Gorell and Chris Holden.

If the Labor and Employment committee pass the bill, it would be referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee. With approval, AB 322 then would be voted on by the full Assembly.

Pending approval by the full Assembly, the bill will be referred to the Senate and go through a similar policy and fiscal review process.

AB 332 moved forward earlier this month in the Legislature after the Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism and Internet Media committee voted 5-1 in favor of the bill.

The bill was introduced in February by Assemblyman Isadore Hall from Compton, Calif., and mirrors Measure B, which makes condoms mandatory for porn shoots in Los Angeles County.

Hall's proposal, denounced by adult entertainment trade group Free Speech Coalition and a majority of the industry, would mandate barrier protection for adult productions shot statewide.

Last week, Hall and co-author Richard Bloom — whose constituents of voters stretch from Hollywood, Calif., to Malibu, Calif. — amended the bill to clarify language and change its effective date.

The bill was altered to drop language requiring that health and safety programs must be approved by Cal/OSHA for producers. Instead the bill now makes provisions only for programs that meet requirements of the state's Injury and Illness Prevention Program and the bloodborne  pathogens standard.

If passed, AB 332 would be effective Jan. 1, 2015.
