Earlier this week I wrote about Erin Murphy’s plan for $100+ million ongoing funding for broadband. It’s great to see that Tim Walz, also running for Governor, is talking about serious money for broadband too $300 million. MPR reports…
Walz is also proposing an increase in the gas tax and a boost in local government aid. He wants to invest $300 million in high-speed internet access throughout the state.
Walz did not did not say how much the overall proposal would cost. He called it a work in progress and did not rule out tax increases.
“If I have to ask the wealthiest Minnesotans to pay, I will ask,” he said.
