Rep Poppe talks about Minnesota broadband grants in Gov Walz’s budget

The Austin Daily Herald posts an article from Representative Jeanne Poppe on the Governor’s budget, including his broadband investment…

Other parts of Gov. Walz’s proposal include providing access to robust, dependable broadband internet. This utility is now recognized as an important factor in the economic well-being of communities all over the state. Minnesota set a goal of border-to-border broadband access by 2022. The governor’s budget would help accomplish that by funding $70 million over the next two years. These funds would help over 193,000 homes and businesses gain access to reliable internet, and set the groundwork for increasing broadband speeds in the future.
