But state Rep. William Fourkiller thinks outside the box. The Stilwell Democrat is proposing to place a tax on so-called violent video games.
His measure, House Bill 2696, seeks a 1 percent tax on the sales of all video games rated “teen,” “mature,” or “adult only,” by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
That revenue, in turn, would be split between the Childhood Education Outdoor Revolving Fund and the Bullying Prevention Revolving Fund.
If passed, a few of the “violent” video games that would carry the tax include “Zumba Fitness 2” and “Dance Central 2,” both of which are rated “teen.”
