State Sen. Dan Sparks, DFL-Austin calling for a $100 million for broadband

I wrote about the proposal last week but it’s nice to see the local news picking it up and mentioning the supporting Senators. The Albert Lea Tribune reports…

State Sen. Dan Sparks, DFL-Austin, is one of Minnesota’s Democratic legislators calling for a $100 million investment in broadband…

“If we want to support our small towns, and truly make a commitment to greater Minnesota, this is one way we can get there,” Sparks said in a press release. “In order for our students and businesses to compete, all of our residents need access to high-speed broadband. This level of investment can really push us to the next level.”
