Following up on the earlier news that Obama wanted to delay the DTV transition, there’s been a couple major events the last two days.

First, on Monday, the Senate passed a bill delaying the transition to June 12. Then yesterday, the bill failed in the House.

So we’re back on schedule. For now.

Update

(link) Off again. Probably until at least June 12 now.

Congress yesterday approved a four-month delay in plans to halt analog television, the latest chapter in a troubled effort by the government to clear airwave space for emergency responders and wireless services by moving millions of households to digital television.
