PTC Congratulates McDowell on FCC Nomination

 

LOS ANGELES (June 2, 2009) – The Parents Television Council™ offered congratulations to Robert McDowell who was nominated as a returning commissioner today.

 

“We congratulate Mr. McDowell on his nomination to return to the FCC as a commissioner, and we look forward to continuing to work with him.  We encourage him to take a lead on critical family issues like ensuring that the broadcast decency law is upheld, and the Senate must ensure his commitment during the confirmation process,” said PTC President Tim Winter.  “With today’s announcement, there is still an opportunity to find another commissioner with a solid track record on family issues and we hope that the Senate Republican leadership will heed this advice.  Standing for broadcast decency means standing with the interests of every American family.”

 

To speak with a representative from the Parents Television Council, please contact Kelly Oliver (ext. 140) or Megan Franko (ext. 148) at (703) 683-5004.
