The White House is putting its weight behind a new bill aimed at delaying the mandated February 17 switchover to digital television. Like the previous bill, it quickly was passed by the Senate, but its fate in the House remains uncertain. White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage said in a statement "We urge the House to move quickly to pass this bill, and we will work with Congress to improve the information and assistance available to Americans as the nation moves to digital television."
