"Games will not be treated like pornography in Utah - at least not this year.

Facing a midnight deadline to pass legislation, the Utah State Senate last night failed to bring to a vote Rep. David Hogue's (seen at left) highly controversial bill which would have amended an existing law concerning distribution of porn to minors. The now-dead HB257 (http://www.le.state.ut.us/~2006/bills/hbillint/hb0257.htm) would have equating giving violent games to children with providing them with hardcore smut.

As reported (http://gamepolitics.livejournal.com/215683.html) last week by GamePolitics, passed the Utah House of Representatives by a decisive 56-8 vote despite First Amendment concerns expressed by some House members.

Hm, yes, probably in the center of his secret dead baby collection.
