Senate Commerce Readies Indecency Vote

Senate Commerce Readies Indecency Vote

The Senate Commerce Committee is expected to mark up its broadcast indecency bill Tuesday (March 9).
S. 2056, the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act of 2004, sponsored by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., would raise the fines the FCC could levy for broadcast indecency tenfold to $275,000, with a cap of $3 million for repeat offenders. A similar bill passed out of the House Commerce Committee last week with the penalties hiked to $500,000 per incident.
