Representative Ron Kresha
Representative Paul Thissen

Policy makers responded to the Minnesota Broadband Vision that was crafted during the conference:

One added highlight was when Rep Thissen suggested the Legislature consider $100 million for broadband in 2016, Rep Kresha suggested closer to $30 million and a representative from Senator Dayton’s office announced that he would be suggesting a budget significantly higher than what he suggested in 2015 ($30 million).
