Illinois about to restrict sale of video games to minors

When last we reported on the Illinois legislature's attempts to target video games, a bill had been introduced by two legislators to ban sales of violent or sexually explicit games to minors.

Now that bill is nearly law.

The Illinois House approved it this week, and the Senate already has. Now the legislation goes to Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich (a fan of it) for his expected signature.
