North Carolina Video Game Legislation to be Revived

A video game bill which failed to clear North Carolina’s legislature will be re-introduced by its Democratic sponsor in the 2007 session.

As reported by the Star-News:

(State Sen. Julia) Boseman said she would again file her bill to make it a crime to sell violent and sexually explicit video games to minors… She said she is going ahead despite the fact that similar laws around the country have been deemed unconstitutional intrusions on free speech. “We think we can reduce the conflict with constitutional issues,” she said.

The previous version of Boseman’s bill was passed by the North Carolina Senate in 2005 but was never taken up by the House.
