Minnesota Farmers Union Day on the Hill: broadband comes up

AgriNews report on Minnesota Farmers Union’s annual lobby day at the Minnesota Capitol. Their top concerns were Health care affordability, taxes and access to meat processing facilities but broadband was mentioned…

Linda Larson said she wants the Legislature to act to expand broadband in the state. She said she didn’t have coverage at her home in Rosemount, Minn., and had to install a landline to access the internet. Larson said she’d heard similar concerns from neighbors.
