Rep Simonson suggests MN House increase broadband budget to $85M. House votes out of order.

Proponents of broadband funding had a glimmer of hope that the House could increase their broadband budget today. Representative Simonson asked the House to consider increasing the budget and align their broadband budget and plans with the Senate. But his suggestion was called out as out of order noting that a budget change would need to go through Ways and Means.

Clearly I’ve recorded from the livesteam. It was the best way to do it and get the info out ASAP…
