Add Florida to the List of States Considering Violent Video Game Legislation
Reuters is reporting that Florida State Senator Alex Diaz de la Portilla (R-Miami) introduced a bill on Tuesday restricting the sale of violent video games to minors. The text of the bill is said to be a "near clone" of the California legislation recently signed into law by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Entertainment Software Association has sued to enjoin that law, and will likely sue if this bill becomes law.
Courts in Washington State, St. Louis County, Missouri, and Indianapolis have blocked similar legislation on free speech grounds.
