House To Vote on Brownback Indecency Bill


HOUSE TO VOTE ON BROWNBACK BILL
[SOURCE: Broadcasting&Cable, AUTHOR: John Eggerton]
The House will vote on the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act of 2005 (S. 193), sponsored by Sen Sam Brownback (R-KS), on Tuesday June 6. It will almost certainly pass given that it has already passed the Senate unanimously and an even tougher House bill passed overwhelmingly last year. The bill lacks virtually all the poison pill provisions that have kept any indecency bill from passing in the past two years. Those have included bringing a station's license into play and upping the fines on performers, both provisions were in the House bill that passed, but got no traction in the Senate. “Next week, the House will vote on the broadcast decency enforcement act, and I hope we can send a bill to the president’s desk for him to sign and enact into law," said Sen Brownback. "This is a victory for children and families.”
