Indiana Violent Videogames Legislation Dies Due To Lack Of Support


In January 2006, Indiana State Senator Vi Simpson announced she would be proposing and supporting a bill to prevent the sale of violent videogames to minors.  What exactly was proposed in Senate Bill 135 will never be known, however, as the bill was abandoned yesterday after failing to receive enough support to be formally introduced to the senate.

An earlier incarnation of Indiana's video games legislation was struck down on constitutional grounds in 2005.
