To the editor:
People may remember when many rural households didn’t have electricity or running water.
Although those days are long gone for most, some American infrastructure is in disrepair.
This is why President Trump has made it a priority to rebuild America’s infrastructure. He proposes to devote $50 billion, which is 25 percent of new federal money, to improving infrastructure in rural America. This is an unprecedented commitment. His proposal will stimulate at least $1.5 trillion in infrastructure investments over the next decade.
I am delighted to share with you some great news right now. Included in the FY 2018 budget bill is a robust investment of $600 million in rural broadband.
