Digitial Transistion Un-Postponed
The House defeated the bill which would postpone the transition to digital television on Wednesday, the Star Tribune reported.
The Senate unanimously passed a bill two days ago which would delay the transition to June 14, but Republicans in the House were successful in stopping that plan.
Obama and Democrats believe that not enough Americans are ready for the switch, and today's decision was a major setback for them, the Star Tribune said.
The article, written by the Associated Press, cites Nielsen Co. reports that over 6.5 million homes rely that on analog television are not prepared for a transition next month.
