Michigan votes for videogame bill

  Michigan's House of Representatives recently announced a vote of 98 to 2 in favor of a bill that fines retailers for selling mature videogames to minors. It is stated that any type of sale or rental of an M- or AO-rated game to anyone under 17 years of age will result in a misdemeanor. The guilty party will be punished by a 90-day prison sentence, a $1,000 fine, or both. With this vote it moves the bill to the Michigan Senate for further voting. The bill will be approached sometime this year. We'll keep you updated.
