Governor’s Revised Budget – still $50 million for broadband

Governor Walz’s revised budget came out late last week. He still has $50 million for broadband grants for 2022 and nothing for 2023.

The MN House is till looking at $120 million for the biennium. A bill for $120 million was introduced in the Senate. But more recently, the Senate GOP released their first budget targets for the upcoming biennial budget and included $40 million for broadband.
