GAO reviewed the Department of Commerce, National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) new rule on rules to implement and administer a coupon program for digital-to-analog converter boxes. GAO found that (1) the final rule implements a program through which eligible U.S. households may obtain via the United States Postal Service a maximum of two coupons of $40 each to be applied towards the purchase of a Coupon-Eligible Converter Box; and (2) aside from the required 60-day delay in its effective date, NTIA complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
