New York Games Bill *this close* to becoming law

With the Manhunt debacle going on, it seems to have slipped under the radar that the New York bill that would make it a felony to sell a violent video game to a person under the age of 18 was all but signed into law yesterday.

As expected, the Senate and Assembly reached agreement on video game legislation. However, time ran out before the measure could be passed in both houses. Legislators expect to formally pass the bill when they return in July. At that point the video game bill will go to Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D), who is expected to sign it into law.

Although the bill did not get passed yesterday, it’s important to note that both houses agreed on the language of the bill and fully expect it to pass the houses and be signed into law when they reconvene in July.
