The article focuses on the response of House Energy Commerce Committee chairman Representative John Dingell on the government oversight of the digital TV transition in the U.S. It was reported that the Congress charged the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to implement the converter-box program, but have not received permission from the Office Management and Budget to release final rules. He asserts that the administration seems to view the program as unwelcome homework.
