A woman from southeast Minnesota has told members of Congress about the importance of high-speed internet access. Michelle Schroeder of rural Welch testified Wednesday during a U-S House committee hearing. Schroeder said she feels rural Minnesota has been left behind. She says failing to have a good internet connection can cause problems when meetings are held on ZOOM. She told lawmakers she hopes the new infrastructure law will bring faster broadband service to her part of Minnesota. She was invited to speak by Congresswoman Angie Craig.
