California Passes Violent Game Regulation

The California Assembly has passed a bill before the end of their session that would prevent violent games from being sold to minors. Incompliance with the bill would result in a $1,000 fine for each violation. The bill, AB1179, was passed by the California Senate by a vote of 22-9. The bill then was approved by the Assembly by a vote of 65-7. The bill now needs Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s signature or veto.

“Governor Schwarzenegger is no longer an action star but an elected representative of all Californians; I am hopeful that he will consider our children’s best interests by signing this commonsense legislation into law and giving parents a necessary tool to raise healthy kids,” said Speaker Yee in a statement.
