Indecency Bill Might Get Vote This Week

Filed under by Amanda Toering — 03/08/2005 @ 5:19 pm

Broadcasting & Cable is reporting that the Senate may take up the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act when it’s done playing with bankruptcy law. Sources tell B&C that the vote could come by the end of the week, and that it will almost definitely engender some debate. This could also be the opportunity Ted Stevens has been looking for to tack on a cable regulation provision.

Civics refresher: It’s the House-authored bill that the Senate will vote on. The Senate’s more moderate Brownback/Lieberman bill seems to have died in committee. The House bill, remember, would raise fines to a whopping $500,000 per violation.

Talk to your Senators. Speak up.
