Digital TV bill drivers

Every congressional bill has a driver behind it. Who were the drivers behind the digital TV bill?

The primary sponsors of the Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005 were Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, and then-Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska. The final passage of the law came as part of a budget bill sponsored by Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H.

The main, stated goal of the legislation was to force TV broadcasters to shift to digital service, freeing up a prime spectrum of the public airwaves for use by public safety agencies, which were seeking frequencies that would allow them to more easily communicate with one another.

But the conversion carries a price: Millions of U.S. households still have analog televisions that pick up broadcasts over antenna, as opposed to cable or satellite transmission, and will need to either replace their sets or buy converter boxes to translate the digital signal.

The bill sought to subsidize the cost by allocating some $3 billion to be raised by auctioning another section of the freed-up spectrum to companies seeking more bandwidth for broadband services. It set a Feb. 17, 2009, deadline for the conversion. But earlier this year, the Obama administration said funding for the conversion was inadequate, and the deadline was extended to June 12.
