It’s been a week of uncertainty and lots of talk regarding the Feb. 17 DTV date, but now comes action. Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), incoming Commerce chair, on Jan. 15 introduced a bill that would move the conversion date to June 12. “I firmly believe that our nation is not yet ready to make this transition,” Rockefeller said in a statement. A House version is expected soon.
