ABSTRACT
The article offers opinion on a bill sponsored by New Jersey Representative Steve Rothman aimed at delaying the narrowbanding deadline in the U.S. by two years. The impact of the bill on licensees who prepare and do not prepare for the deadline are cited. A Public Notice regarding a deadline extension from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is not sufficient for any licensee, according to the author. He notes that licensees will no longer trust the FCC, if the bill passes.
