DTV Transition Delay Fails to Pass House

by on January 28, 2009 · 7 comments

S. 328, the DTV Delay Act, did not receive the 2/3 majority needed to pass in the House under the procedure known as “Suspension of the Rules.” Here’s the roll call vote – 258 for passage, 168 against. It was introduced and passed in the Senate Monday.

It would pass a straight up-or-down vote, but House leadership evidently miscalculated the level of support the measure enjoys.
