Liquor ad fight stirs Congress

Published on .

U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D., Mass.) said he would introduce a "sense of the House" resolution urging the Federal Communications Commission to look into liquor advertising on TV. Separately, two influential U.S. senators, Conrad Burns, (R., Mont.), chairman of the Senate subcommittee on communications, and John Ashcroft, (R., Mo.), chairman of the subcommittee on consumer affairs, urged the FCC to leave liquor advertising issues to the Federal Trade Commission. FCC Chairman Reed Hundt earlier this week delayed a commission vote on a liquor ad inquiry in the face of opposition from two FCC members.
