The airing of the 2003 Golden Globe Awards and the subsequent ruling by the FCC's Enforcement Bureau, coupled with the controversy surrounding the 2004 Super Bowl half-time show, brought broadcast indecency to the forefront of the congressional agenda during the 108th Congress. Several bills were introduced, but not enacted, in the 108th Congress to increase the penalties imposed for broadcast indecency and to prohibit the broadcast of certain words and phrases in any grammatical form. Similar legislation has been introduced in the 109th Congress. This report provides background on the two events in question, discusses the legal evolution of the FCC's indecency regulations, and provides an overview of how the current regulations have been applied and pending legislation. The final section of the report considers whether prohibiting the broadcast of "indecent" words regardless of context would violate the First Amendment353ocn057580652book20030.93Welborn, AngieBankruptcy reform in the 108th Congress332ocn052296512book20010.95Welborn, AngieFederal and state causes of action against health plans under S. 1052 and S. 889252ocn056497518book20030.95Welborn, AngieIdentity theft and the Fair Credit Reporting Act an analysis of TRW v.

Specifically, questions have arisen regarding increased prices in the areas affected by Hurricane Katrina and the effect that the damage caused by the hurricane will have on prices, specifically gasoline prices, in other parts of the country. State laws regarding price gouging in the event of an emergency are discussed, as well as the role the federal government could play in addressing rising gas prices in other parts of the country162ocn233540041book20060.93Schuman, DanielReligious Freedom Restoration Act an overview of Gonzales v.

However, prior to 2001, Congress began enacting charitable choice rules for various federally funded social programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Community Service Block Grant (CSBG), and substance abuse prevention and treatment programs. When Congress did not enact legislation to apply the concepts behind charitable choice to more programs, the Bush Administration issued an Executive Order directing a wide range of social programs to follow the rubric of charitable choice. Despite the focus on charitable choice during the Bush Administration, perhaps the broadest example of charitable choice rules are those established by the 1996 welfare reform law (P.L. 104-193). Since its inception, charitable choice has been persistently controversial; and President Bush's faith-based initiative made the controversy highly visible. Much of the legal controversy has centered on the constitutionality of the federal government directly subsidizing faith-based social services programs and on whether subsidized religious organizations ought to be able to discriminate on religious grounds in their employment practices. This report provides analysis of a number of factual, civil rights, and constitutional questions that have been raised regarding charitable choice in general. The analysis is generally focused on those provisions enacted as part of the 1996 welfare reform law. More recent charitable choice rules may give rise to the same or similar concerns. Primarily, this report focuses on civil rights concerns that have arisen in the context of charitable choice and First Amendment issues, as well as recent legal developments related to charitable choice22ocn070897737book20011.00Welborn, AngieThe Consumer Credit Protection Act : an overview of its major components+-+4152885406+-+4152885406Fri Mar 21 15:22:24 EDT 2014batch14836
