Constituents ask MN legislators to remember broadband promises

A letter to the Editor in the Daily Globe, from a frustrating constituent…

I was expecting the first few days of the legislative session to produce something from the House and the Senate. Maybe something about broadband, I thought, or something to help Minnesota families and farmers, etc. Instead, I see these two proposed bills coming from the Republican-controlled legislature:  a right to discriminate (allowing businesses to refuse service to LBGT communities) and a bathroom bill (which was shot down in 2015).

Are you kidding me? Listening very closely to House and Senate Republican campaign promises, I remember Bill Weber promised he would help lower health care premiums, help farmers and propel broadband to the top of the list of priorities.
