Uh ... not delay because they need a delay?
Watch it online on CSPAN could not believe it! But there was a republican in the discussion I forgot his name and was saying that they could not delay the analog shutdown because of national security issues that Homeland Security and other Federal Agencies needs the analog transmission in case of a national emergencies.
Homeland Security NEEDS the shutdown to be on schedule to free up the spectrum for first responders (trunked radio systems). Delaying the shutdown so analog TV is available to reach people is the opposite argument.
