A committee of the Utah House of Representatives will conduct a hearing today on video game legislation drafted by disbarred Miami attorney Jack Thompson.
As GamePolitics has reported, HB 353, sponsored by Rep. Mike Morley (R), would amend Utah’s truth in advertising law. Retailers who advertise that products such as M-rated video games or R-rated DVDs will not be sold to underage buyers could face liability if they fail to uphold that standard.
The House Business and Labor Standing Committee will meet at 4:10 local time today to consider the measure.
