Albert Lea Tribune applauds State funding for broadband

According to the Albert Lea Tribune

To efforts to bring more broadband funding to Greater Minnesota.

Though it’s still unclear how much funding for broadband will be included by the end of the session, it is promising to see that both the House and Senate have appropriated funding for it in their bills.

We support a Senate bill that includes $85 million in broadband investment over the House version for $25 million because of how vital it is for economic development.

Local leaders have lobbied for this funding, stressing its importance for local business. We hope in the end, legislators will see the value in these dollars for Greater Minnesota.
