Calif. legislator proposes porn tax to fix budget shortfall

Assemblyman Charles Calderon, who represents a suburban district in southern California, has proposed a 25% tax on pornography to help fix California’s budget shortfall. Money would go to an “Adult Entertainment Venue Impact Fund.”

The bill, AB2914, would tax both live adult entertainment and video production and sales, according to one of the few news reports. Its sponsor suggests it could glean as much as $665 million.
