U.S. senators introduce CDC video game investigation bill
Gamasutra reports that a group of U.S. senators including Democrats Joseph Lieberman, Hillary Clinton ad Dick Durbin and Republicans Rick Santorum ad Sam Brownback have managed to convince a Senate committee to initially approve a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that would examine video game ad other electronic media use. Lieberman first introduced the bill in 2003, saying "For one thing, we should know whether games like Grand Theft Auto that celebrate violence against women, beyond being sick and offensive, are actually leading to more violence against women." That first bill allocated some $90US for the study, but no figure has been confirmed for this new study.
