US Congress Considers Huge Indecency Fine Increase

“Indecency” fines for US broadcasters could go up 15-fold under a bill wending its way through Congress. “A select committee in the House of Representatives has voted in favour of a bill to increase individual fines to a maximum of $500,000. Stations could also face losing their licence if they violate indecency laws more than three times. Under the bill, individual performers could also face a fine.”
