WASHINGTON — A bill to require videogames to carry rating labels was introduced Thursday by two senators who say some of the games are too violent for young children.“It’s time to draw the line against violence and sexual images in children’s videogames,” said Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D.-Conn.), who introduced the bill with Sen. Herb Kohl (D.-Wis.). The videogame industry has said it will develop a rating code in response to complaints by the senators, but the bill would keep pressure on the industry for a rating system, the senators said. A March 4 hearing is planned to assess the industry’s progress in developing a rating system.
