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

The Assembly Appropriations Committee will hear AB 332 as the 25th item on a slate of about 150 bills.

The hearing will stream over the Internet on Wednesday at 9 a.m. here.

If approved by the Assembly Appropriations Committee, 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 last month after two panels  — the Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism and Internet Media and the Labor and Employment committees — voted 5-1 and 5-0, respectively, 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.

The state Assembly Appropriations Committee consists of  its sponsor,  Hall, as well as other Assembly members, including Mike Gatto, Diane Harkey, Franklin Bigelow, Raul Bocanegra, Steven Bradford, Ian Calderon, Nora Campos, Tim Donnelly, Susan Talamantes Eggman, Jimmy Gomez, Chris Holden, Eric Linder, Richard Pan, Bill Quirk, Donald Wagner and Shirley N. Weber.

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