Actress Halle Berry is headed to Sacramento to testify in favor of new legislation,which would limit the paparazzi’s ability to photograph stars’ children.

The bill – SB 606,written by Senator Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) – aims to also protect the children of public officials,said the Hollywood Reporter.

It would modify the definition of the term harassment,currently meaning an activity that “seriously alarms,annoys,torments or terrorizes” a person,to also include recording or taking photographs of a child without the permission of a legal guardian.

The legislation would also ban “following the child’s activities or lying in wait” and targeting a child because of their parent’s line of work.

Berry,46,who is currently pregnant with her second child,is a mother to 5-year-old daughter Nahla.
