Yee Camp Responds to Opponent's Swipe at Video Game Legislation

Last week GamePolitics reported on remarks made by 77-year-old Lou Papan, who is campaigning against Leland Yee for a spot in the California State Senate.

Papan took a shot at Yee's highly-publicized game legislation, telling the San Mateo Daily Journal, "Quite frankly, video games aren't the most pressing issue in Sacramento right now."

Yee spokesman Adam Keigwin was quick to respond to Papan's attack on Yee's relevance, telling GamePolitics, "Clearly, Assemblymember Yee has been working on a number of issues besides protecting children from violent video games. In fact, he has passed 52 pieces of legislation in just 3 years, of which 38 have been chaptered into law under Governors Schwarzenegger and Davis."

"These bills range from strengthening the foster care system to improving the school nutritional standards. In addition, Dr. Yee has successfully passed legislation to protect our environment from polluters, provide loan forgiveness for those who enter mental health fields in low income areas, increase penalties for those who sexually exploit children, and help end intrastate human trafficking."

"In addition, Assemblyman Yee is now authoring legislation to end the unfair practice of billing patients instead of insurance companies, adding sexual orientation to the list of protections in the code of fair campaign practices, and shielding victims of domestic violence from testifying in court..."
