MN Rep Rasmusson’s legislative update include broadband bill (HF2194)

Jordan Rasmusson is a Minnesota State Representative for District 8A. He recently provided a Legislative update to the Fergus Falls Daily Journal, including an update on his broadband bill…

Legislation I am authoring in the House (H.F. 2194) would provide $120 million in 2022-23 for delivering broadband internet service to unserved/underserved areas of the state – including areas in Otter Tail County. Our region is one of the most expensive areas in the state to install broadband, so grants like those included in my bill are critical to getting more residents broadband access. My bill would represent our state’s largest broadband investment ever. Sen. Westrom of Elbow Lake has authored the Senate companion bill, and I look forward to working with him on this issue.
