Lawmakers in Idaho have overwhelmingly approved a proposal to request that the federal government and the FCC ban premarital sex on television during specified hours.
The House State Affairs Committee has had enough of sitcoms, dramas and even advertisements being sexual in nature and wants to do something about it.
“We need to take a stand and stand up for for the morality of what is best for the citizens of Idaho,” stated Representative Darrell Bolz.
The Committee would like to see a ban on all depictions of premarital sex, as well as inferences to the act, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The proposal is not a bill, nor any act that will change what takes place on the airwaves in the state, but is rather what is known as a “joint memorial,” which is defined as a measure “adopted by both houses and used to make a request of or to express an opinion to Congress, the President of the United States or both.” In other words, legislators will send a statement or opinion to the government, urging it to take action on a certain matter.
