Governor Dayton’s budget sets $60 million for broadband

The Pioneer Press detailed pieces of Governor Dayton’s budget. Here’s what they pulled out for broadband..

Technology: Rural broadband would get $60 million, while the state’s own antiquated IT systems would get $51 million for upgrades and $74 million specifically to boost cybersecurity.

There are more meetings this week where I suspect the budget conversation will continue. I will try to report back.
