The problem the House members would have is debate on this bill when the public thinks they have much more important business to attend to. My opinion was the fast track was the one chance to get the cut off delayed.
The Senate bill did not really delay the analog station cut off for stations that are ready anyway. It has a provision to allow the stations the choice of cutting off their analog if the want to. My guess is most stations would rather not operate two stations if they didn't have to.
