WCCO on candidates: Dan Feehan promotes universal service funds for broadband

WCCO reports on Dan Feehan, Democratic candidate for the 1st District answers to a number of questions including one on broadband…

We reached out to all Minnesota candidates running for U.S Senate and U.S Congress this fall. Candidates were asked to provide a two-minute video discussing their platform as well as answer a set of our viewers’ questions.

His comments on broadband…

Do you believe the government should subsidize broadband internet access for rural areas? Should public school districts reimburse families for the cost of distance learning?

I support the universal service fund and the requirement that large cities do their part to ensure the entire country gets much needed broadband. Our communities in southern Minnesota are in desperate need of increased investment in rural broadband. By supporting broadband, we can assist our schools, small businesses, and economies in Minnesota’s First District. In Congress, I would hope to lead on investments in infrastructure that included rural broadband.
