Last night, members of a legislative conference committee reached agreement on a $20 million investment in broadband infrastructure this session. The following is a statement from Governor Mark Dayton.
"Border-to-border access to reliable cell phone and high-speed internet coverage will be essential to Minnesota's continued economic growth. These new investments in broadband infrastructure will help move our state closer that important goal. I thank Senator Matt Schmit, Representative Tim Mahoney, Representative Sheldon Johnson, and Representative Erik Simonson for their outstanding leadership on this legislation."
