Washington – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement applauding President Trump’s executive order to “use all viable tools” to accelerate the deployment and adoption of affordable and reliable broadband connectivity in rural America.
“As a Member of the Rural Broadband Caucus and the proud representative of New York’s 21st District, I commend the President for making rural broadband a priority,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Increasing access to rural broadband is a major priority for our region that will help grow our economy and increase access to educational opportunities. Specifically, I know increasing access to broadband internet for our farmers will help them bring their operations into the 21st Century. In Congress, I have been pleased to lead on two major legislative initiatives to increase access to rural broadband and I look forward to partnering with the Trump Administration on this important effort.”
