Rep. Kind Proposing Expanded Rural Internet Legislation
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/25/2021

Rep. Ron Kind joined his colleagues on the Rural Broadband Task Force in introducing the Accessible, Affordable Internet for All Act. The measure would authorize over $94 billion to ensure rural and underserved communities have access to affordable high-speed Internet.

"As a member of the National Rural Broadband Task Force, expanding access to broadband is one of my highest priorities," Rep. Kind said. "The Internet is a necessity and has fundamentally changed the way we learn, communicate, access information, and conduct business, particularly throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Unfortunately, far too many communities throughout Wisconsin have limited access to high-speed Internet."

Wisconsin currently ranks 36th of America's most connected states, with about a fifth of the state's population considered underserved or with limited access to broadband.

Kind has been a member of the House Rural Broadband Task Force since it was created in 2019.
