According to Reuters, when the earlier reprieve is set to expire, the Trump administration initially planned a short-term two-week reprieve, but later issue a new 90-day extension.
“The Temporary General License extension will allow carriers to continue to service customers in some of the most remote areas of the United States who would otherwise be left in the dark,” said U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a statement.
