     I support this Notice of Apparent Liability for the 
broadcast of indecent material at a time when children may 
be in the audience.  By issuing this NAL, we step up to our 
responsibility to enforce statutory and regulatory 
provisions restricting broadcast indecency.  For the first 
time, we impose fines based upon separate utterances.  While 
this is not the most egregious case that I have seen, the 
material broadcast is indecent under our standards and the 
fines appropriately account for the violation of our rules.  

     Since I arrived at the Commission, we have greatly 
stepped up our enforcement against indecent broadcasts.  I 
expect that stepped-up actions like those we take today will 
convince broadcasters that they cannot ignore their 
responsibility to serve the public interest and to avoid the 
broadcast of indecent material over the public airwaves.
