North Carolina bill dies
A bill that would've prevented the sale of "obscene" or "violent" games to minors formally slipped into the abyss this week with the end of the current North Carolina legislative session. Proposed by State Senator Julia Boseman, the bill made headlines last year by rapidly advancing through second and third readings in the Senate. It later stalled in a House committee however, and then languished into 2006. Boseman says she does plan to revive the bill if she's re-elected this November.
