Booth exits SAG for prod’n co.

Lobbyist worked on new media protections

Allison Booth, who has headed the Screen Actors Guild’s state legislative program since 1998, plans to leave the union to join an Oregon-based production company.

Booth joined SAG in early 1998 as a legislative consultant on the California personal privacy law and joined the org’s governmental relations department in July of that year. She also worked on the Monitors Co. report, issued by SAG and the Directors Guild of America, on runaway production and the revision of the state’s Coogan Law to protect young performers.

Booth worked most recently on the California Image Manipulation Bill, designed to provide protections in new-media formats.

“Allison’s advocacy on behalf of performers through our state legislative program has had a real and lasting impact in this industry,” said Catherine York, SAG’s national director of governmental relations.
