RENT-SELL VIDEOS TO CHILDREN                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Video Movie Sales and Rentals Act.  Prohibits a person      
   from selling at retail or renting, or attempting to sell at retail  or      
   rent,  a  video  movie  to  a  child  below the age of 18 years if the      
   official rating of the motion picture from which the video  movie  was      
   copied  recommends that such child not be allowed to attend the motion      
   picture at a movie theater unless accompanied by  a  parent  or  adult      
   guardian. Provides that if no official rating exists, a person may not      
   sell  at  retail  or  rent,  or attempt to sell at retail or rent, the      
   video movie to a child below the age of 18 years unless the person has      
   obtained the written  consent  of  the  child's  parent  or  guardian.      
   Provides  that the penalty is a petty offense, with a fine of not more      
   than $100, for a first offense and a Class C misdemeanor for a  second      
   or subsequent offense.
