Bakk also talked about another bill introduced to spend about $120 million to expand broadband across the state, which he said is crucial throughout this pandemic and is something others agreed with.
“As far as priorities on the board we are always looking forward to broadband,” said Mike Jugovich, the St.Louis County Board chair. “As we look forward to the current session, one of our top priorities is maintaining for county aid and state mandated services.”
