Default WWVB eliminated, too?

The +ACI-TRUMP+ACI administration's planned elimination of WWV/WWVH popped up on NPR's Weekend Edition. Scott Simon interviewed Tom Witherspoon of the SWLing Post. Witherspoon said, as the bill is written, ALL of the time stations are scheduled to be gone. A spokesman for clockmaker LaCrosse said he believed that Congress would not pass a bill which killed the time sync for 50 million clocks.
