Bush wants to delay spectrum auctions
By BroadCasting & Cable Staff -- Broadcasting & Cable, 3/11/2001 7:00:00 PM
The Bush administration plans to send legislation to Capitol Hill in April that would move the statutory deadlines for analog spectrum auctions to 2004 for ch. 60-69 (currently Sept. 12, 2001) and to 2006 for ch. 52-59 (currently 2002), administration officials said last week. The legislation also would levy analog spectrum fees of $200 million per year starting in 2002, but House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Billy Tauzin (R-La.) has said that proposal is "dead on arrival."
