The [Utah] bill, sponsored by Rep. Morely and supported by the Eagle Forum and Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert, would have made the sale of an age-restricted game to a kid a deceptive trade practice, allowing parents to sue the retailer.
But the bill's sponsor Louisiana Sen. A.G. Crowe has gutted the measure after conferring with retailers and attorneys. Even with that, the bill is being challenged by other lawmakers for being vague and duplicating other state laws.
Crowe can expect to receive ranting emails from Thompson with videos attached of scantily clad cartoon strippers.
