Democratic Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania recently responded to one of our reader’s inquiries about S.968, the bill that is looming on the minds of every video game loving internet user. Here’s his response.

Elder-Geek.com will try to keep you informed as more develops. However, we highly encourage you to contact your senators and voice your opinions on this matter.
