Following the indecency hearing in the Senate Thursday, Congressman Fred Upton, R-Mich., chairman of the House Commerce Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet, urged that body to take up his bill on the issue which would raise the amount the FCC can fine for indecency from $32,500 to$500,000 per violation.
By increasing the fines for indecency to $500,000, the fines will be at a level where they cannot be ignored, he stated. The current cap for fines is $32,500.
