(Harrisburg) -- State lawmakers are considering a bill to require strippers and others who work in the adult entertainment industry to register with the state and to put tighter regulations on strip clubs.

The proposal, which has more than 60 co-sponsors, is being promoted as a means to combat sex trafficking.

A spokesman for a national strip club trade association says it would be a waste of money and raises privacy concerns.

The bill could go before the House Judiciary Committee early next week. It would require adult-oriented businesses to register with the Department of State and pay a $300 fee.

Dancers and other employees would have to pay $50 and submit their photo, their real name, their date of birth, their home address and other information.

    There better be a data base that is impenetrable, or Pennsylvania is in for some large damage compensation that will cost tax payers.
