Some Idaho Lawmakers Want Crack Down on “Immoral TV”

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislators in Idaho’s Republican-dominated House want the Federal Communications Commission to crack down on television programs that portray premarital sex. The measure approved 57-13 Tuesday urges the FCC to enforce “standards of decency” in TV programming some proponents equate to immoral behavior.

Republican Rep. Darrell Bolz of Caldwell said the resolution doesn’t request any new FCC regulations. But he says it simply asks the agency to get back to promoting standards already spelled out in law. Boise Democrat Grant Burgoyne argued against the measure, saying he thinks current FCC standards already serve as a hindrance to free speech.

He argued that efforts to limit broadcasters from portraying unwed individuals engaging in sexual activity could amount to censorship. The resolution now moves to the Senate.
