Liability for Forfeiture

     I have long advocated that the Commission use all of 
the tools it has to tackle indecency on the public's 
airwaves.  Today's decision is a step forward towards 
imposing meaningful fines.  For the first time, the 
Commission assesses a fine against more than a single 
utterance, rather than counting an entire program as one 
utterance.  In addition, the Commission makes clear that its 
indecency enforcement will address not only the station that 
is the subject of a complaint, but also any other station 
that aired the same programming.  I therefore vote to 
approve this decision.
