Last week GamePolitics broke the news that Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) had introduced video game legislation.
The bill, S.3315, enjoys the support of watchdog group the Parents Television Council. If made law, it would:
…prohibit the distribution or sale of video games that do not have age-based content rating labels [and] prohibit the sale or rental of video games with adult content ratings to minors…
Did we mention that Wicker is running for re-election?
In any case, we now have the full text of S.3315. It is the Senate version of a measure currently before the House. HB 5990, the Video Games Rating Enforcement Act, is a bipartisan bill introduced by Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE) and Rep. Jim Matheson (D-UT).
Did we mention that Terry and Matheson are also running for re-election?
