Schwarzenegger Signs Violent Video Games Bill
"California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law legislation that will restrict sales of violent video games to children under 18 years of age. The law goes into effect January 1, 2006.

Drafted by Assembly Speaker pro Tem Leland Yee of San Francisco, the bill, known as AB1179, makes it illegal to sell or rent video games that “depict serious injury to human beings in a manner that is especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel,” according to speaker Yee’s office. Retailers who violate the act can be hit for up to $1,000 in fines."
