Indiana game bill stalls

Legislation to keep minors from buying or renting violent games misses key deadline, fails to get a vote.


A game-restriction bill recently proposed in the Indiana Senate has stalled for the year, according to a report in The Indianapolis Star. The state's part-time Senate must adjourn on March 14 this year, and Senate Bill 135 missed a deadline to pass the first round of legislative action yesterday. The measure isn't necessarily dead, however. It never actually received a vote in the Senate, and violent-gaming restrictions could be tacked onto another piece of legislation, or proposed again next year.
