Despite urging from Bush Administration Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez last week not to postpone the Feb. 17 deadline for the DTV transition, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, filed a bill Jan. 15 to delay the analog shutoff until June 12. “The outgoing Bush Administration has mismanaged this initiative and President-elect Obama has asked Congress to delay the date of the transition. Over 2 million Americans are waiting to receive a coupon to help them offset the cost of equipment that will help them manage the transition — millions more don’t have the proper information they need,” Rockefeller said.
