Martin Lauds Passage of Indecency Bill
Publish date:

In a statement about House passage of the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said, “Many parents are increasingly concerned about what is on television and radio today. Today's vote demonstrates that Congress shares their concern and has a clear desire for a more meaningful enforcement of our decency standard.”
The bill, he said, gives the agency more tools to enable parents to watch television and listen to radio as a family. He also believes concerns regarding content should be addressed “in a comprehensive fashion by empowering parents to choose the programming that comes into their homes.”
