The article focuses on the digital-television (DTV) transmission delay legislation in the U.S. It notes that the DTV bill will set June 12, 2009 as the deadline for DTV transition. According to Senator Jay Rockefeller, a delay is necessary because the outgoing administration mismanaged the DTV transition. It emphasizes that the bill will allow public-safety organizations to use spectrum that had been repealed by analog TV stations before June 12. Other details on the DTV bill are discussed.
