New Federal Regulations for Actors

California and New York, the two major markets for actors, already have stringent child performer laws in place, but other areas of the country don’t.  A Congresswoman from Queens has proposed new legislation that would apply to all child actors. The problem?  CA and NYC don’t need new regulations that would change what is already in place and water it down.  Ming, the woman who wrote the bill, has very little knowledge of child performers and the legislation was written for a small group of models in NYC, not for the national acting market.  In addition, the bill has stalled in committee since July and may never see an actual vote.
