In January 2006, Delegate Ross introduced a bill aimed at limiting the exposure of youngsters to violent and or adult video games. [cite web| last =Stevens| first =Tim| title = A Recent History of Video Game Legislation, Part 2 | publisher =FamilyMediaGuide.com | date =2006-01-18| url =http://www.familymediaguide.com/features/articles/A_Recent_History_of_Video_Game_Legislation_Part_2_-231.html| accessdate =2007-08-31] The bill would have required that retailers of violent and or adult video games label the games as such and provided for stiff penalties for failure to do so. During the 2007 session of the Maryland General Assembly, Delegate Ross sponsored House Bill 554 which was cross-filed with an identical bill, Senate Bill 488, [cite web| last =| first =| title =Senate bill 488| publisher =Maryland Department of Legislative Services: Office of Information Systems| date =| url =http://mlis.state.md.us/2007RS/billfile/sb0488.htm| accessdate =2007-08-31] by State Senator Gwendolyn Britt. These bills would have allowed specified convicted felons, who have been released and completed their conditions of parole and probation, the right to vote. Senate Bill 488 passed both houses and was signed into law by Governor O'Malley.
