House Rejects DTV Delay -> Senate Repasses Bill Again
The House unexpectedly rejected the delay bill that the Senate had unanimously passed earlier this week. On Thursday night the Senate repassed the same bill. The House will vote again on Wednesday (possibly Tuesday) to accept the Delay. The Obama administration is still backing the delay and the bill will need more than half of the votes in the House to pass. In the last go round the bill was defeated 268-164 (61%), but was introduced as a non controversial bill for expedited passage and needed 2/3 the vote. Unless there are some rather convincing opponents, it looks like the bill will go through this time.
