Rep Stauber turns down infrastructure bill that will protect life

The Duluth News Tribune posts from a column pointing on Rep Pete Stauber’s vote against broadband…

On Nov. 5, Rep. Pete Stauber voted no on President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill. Less than a month later, on Dec. 1, he stated his support for dismantling Roe v. Wade, making his well-known “our way of life” argument. These actions were in direct opposition to one another for someone who cares about pro-life stances.

And highlighting importance of broadband to youth…

Our youth will see the largest effort to decrease the class gap since the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson. With $100 million for broadband expansion in Minnesota, $20 million for forest fire prevention, and $17 million for cyberattack protection, children of all backgrounds — rich or poor, rural or urban — will have better access to the education necessary to secure a solid career. They will have access to telehealth, which will minimize bottlenecking our health care system. That again would increase opportunities for mothers and babies to see doctors in a timely manner. Upcoming generations deserve to have their privacy.
