[JURIST] The Federal Communications Commission [official website] has said that it is overhauling the system it uses to process complaints about indecency on the public airwaves [FCC background]. The FCC has hired additional staff to review complaints and is revising the process it uses to track complaints. Meanwhile, on Wednesday Congress began reviewing a proposed bill that would force the FCC to complete each indecency investigation within 180 days and will allow the FCC to fine broadcasters up to $500,000 for violations of indecency rules, with a license revocation hearing required after a broadcaster has three violations. The bill will also allow the FCC to levy fines up to a $500,000 against performers who willfully violate standards. Wednesday's Washington Post has more.
