The Entertainment Software Association has responded to the revival of a Pennsylvania state house bill attempting to collect an additional tax on video games rated mature and for adults, calling the bill a "violation of the US constitution."
The bill was initially introduced last year but died in committee, and has since been brought back as House Bill 109. If passed into law, the bill would apply a 10% additional sales tax on any mature or adult-rated games sold at retail in the state on top of existing taxes. Proceeds would then go to the Digital Protection for School Safety Account, which would be used for "enhancing school safety measures."
