Federal officials are investigating whether a clinic that tests adult film performers for sexually transmitted diseases violated their privacy by requiring them to sign overly broad disclosure agreements. Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, a San Fernando-based clinic, is being investigated by the regional civil rights office of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in San Francisco, according to a federal spokesman. The investigation was prompted by a complaint by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a Los Angeles-based group that has advocated for condom use and increased testing among porn performers.

SACRAMENTO--Gov. Jerry Brown  on Saturday vetoed a bill a that would have expanded the availability of condoms in state prisons. The measure, by Assemblyman Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), would have required the state corrections department to develop a five-year plan to make condoms available in every California prison. Supporters of the measure argued that distributing condoms would help reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases among inmates, who have higher rates of HIV/AIDS infection.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation's clinic in Van Nuys will cease operations in September, said foundation president Michael Weinstein, sending its nearly 500 uninsured or Medi-Cal patients to seek care elsewhere.

Regarding "A Howl of Anger" (Nov. 27): There are those in the AIDS arena who agree with many of Elinor Burkett's concerns and conclusions. It's no wonder she doesn't know of us.
