Defense Department Bill Includes Extension, Gives Legislators Until March 1 To Agree On Stand-alone Bill If Senate Follows Suit
John Eggerton
The House has punted on the satellite bill until January. A 60-day extension of the satellite distant signal license was included in the Department of Defense reauthorization bill that passed Dec. 16 in the House (the vote was 395-34).

This was interesting.

The standalone bill was blocked in the Senate, according to sources, by at least one senator unhappy with the deal letting DISH back into the distant-network signal business in exchange for delivering local TV stations in all 210 markets.

Which senator is really pissed at E*?:eek:
