Stabenow Applauds USDA Launch of High-Speed Internet Initiative

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, & Forestry, released the following statement on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announcement of a new $600 million loan and grant program to bring high-speed internet to rural communities:

“I’m pleased the USDA is finally moving forward on the $600 million high-speed internet investment Congress provided in the 2018 Omnibus. Expanding high-speed internet access is vital to the growth and success of our small towns and rural communities in Michigan and across the country. I look forward to continuing to work with USDA to make these vital resources available to rural families and businesses.”

The new program was made possible by a $600 million investment Congress included in the 2018 Omnibus.
