LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Healthcare activists critical of adult film industry practices are working to put a measure before California voters next year to require porn actors to use condoms during film production, expanding a Los Angeles County rule that survived a legal challenge.

The proposed ballot measure, aimed at protecting actors from sexually transmitted diseases, would require film companies to be licensed by the state and would impose fines of $70,000 for offenders. It would also allow actors to sue producers who violate the rule, supporters said on Wednesday.
