Game ratings bill passed by Californian senate

New legislation which would require video game retailers to clearly display signs notifying purchasers of game ratings has been voted in by the senate in California, and is set to be signed by Governor Arnold Schwarznegger. The bill, AB 1793, calls on retailers to ensure that game ratings are clearly displayed, and to make information about the ratings system readily available to parents purchasing videogames in their stores.

It was originally proposed along with another bill, AB 1792, which was a somewhat hazy and pointless piece of legislation which sought to define "harmful matter to children" in videogames. Both bills were originally defeated by committee, but AB 1793 was passed on reconsideration.
