New California Bill: Governator Hurting Gamers?
For all the uproar he caused in the video game business this afternoon, the Governator didn't really have much to say.
The following statement was issued by Arnold Schwarzenegger today after he signed the state's new video game law along with several other bills related to child protection measures.
"Today I signed legislation to ensure parent involvement in determining which video games are appropriate for their children. The bill I signed will require that violent video games be clearly labeled and not be sold to children under 18 years old. Many of these games are made for adults and choosing games that are appropriate for kids should be a decision made by their parents."
"I also signed into law legislation that will improve foster care services, guard kids from the dangers of steroid use, protect children and everyone from accidental fires by requiring cigarette manufacturers to change the way they make their products, improve the adoption process in California and save babies from neglect and abuse. It is very important to continue putting our children first and doing everything we can to protect their well-being."
