Mayors and other elected community leaders representing 62 cities and counties this week urged President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan to include broadband in infrastructure plans. The signatories represent nearly 16 million Americans. 17% of Americans and some 53% of rural Americans lack broadband access. The letter goes on to recommend three guiding principles that should be included in any federal infrastructure plan: promote broadband access, promote broadband affordability, and promote local solutions for broadband. Congress is working with the Trump administration to find common ground and follow through on Trump’s campaign promises to boost federal infrastructure investment.
