County News Review reports about a meeting in Chisago County…
Rep. Anne Neu, R-North Branch, attended the North Branch Chamber of Commerce Luncheon Sept. 10 to share highlights of the last Minnesota legislative session.
“It’s so fun to be here, especially since there are so many friendly faces,” Neu said. “I’d like to give you an idea of maybe some things on what you should be watching for and looking ahead to the next session.”
Neu said one issue the Legislature worked on is broadband funding.
“I think some things that are really critical for our area is that we put $40 million into broadband funding. It’s not enough yet, but we are continuing down that path to fund broadband,” Neu said. “Obviously, everyone out here knows it’s a huge issue.”
Neu commended the work the city of North Branch is doing regarding the broadband issue.
