Missouri Video Game Bill Under Consideration

The Show Me State is currently showing you a new piece of video game legislation.

As GamePolitics indicated was likely last month, Missouri House Minority Leader Rep. Jeff Harris (D) has in fact proposed HB1467, which would make it a misdemeanor to sell or rent an M- or AO-rated game to anyone under 17.

Harris' bill is currently before the Crime Prevention and Public Safety Committee of the Missouri House, but no action has yet been taken. A Harris staffer told GP yesterday that the bill has until May to be acted upon on die. A similar measure proposed by Harris failed to clear the same Republican-controlled committee in 2005.
