Wasserman Schultz Pushing for Delay in Digital TV Switch
Starting February 18, television signals are scheduled switch to digital, meaning that people with analog televisions (read: the elderly) who don't have converter boxes would lose their signal. But today the U.S. House of Representatives voted to push conversion back to June. President Obama is expected to sign that bill into law tomorrow.
Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been circulating this pamphlet to her constituents, but there are still 5,000 people in her West Broward congressional district on the waiting list for government-issued vouchers that would help defray the costs of the conversion box.
