Rural Broadband Coalition Applauds Gov. Tim Walz’s Proposed $70 Million for Border-to-Border Broadband Grant Program

From the MN Broadband Coalition…

“The Minnesota Rural Broadband coalition applauds Gov. Tim Walz’s budget of $70 million for the Border-to-Border Broadband Grant Program over the next two years,” said Nancy Hoffman, Chair of the MN Rural Broadband Coalition.
This proposal, combined with the Legislation introduced by the House (HF7) and Senate (SF9) for $70 million this biennium, has the potential to bring stability to a grant program long marred by a lack of consistent funding. “We are hoping the years of feast and famine are behind us,” added Hoffman. “We look forward to legislative leaders and Governor Walz working together to move full funding for the grant program across the finish line by the end of the legislative session.”
