State Senator Continuing Border-to-Border Broadband Tour

The public is invited to participate in the broadband discussion at one of several scheduled meetings across the state this month.
(Published Jan 6, 2014)

To help move Minnesota forward to reach its broadband goal, Sen. Matt Schmit (DFL-Red Wing) is hosting a series of conversations on broadband in Minnesota. Minnesotans are also urged to contact their own legislators to attend the local meetings and become more informed on the issue of broadband.

Sen. Schmit will address local leadership perspective and give background on local broadband initiatives. He will also address how broadband—and the lack thereof—is affecting health care providers, educators, local government, and business.
