Congressman says COVID 19 showed everyone the need for broadband internet access
Washington, July 2, 2020
He introduced a bill aimed at creating better broadband access to all areas of the nation.
He says it focuses on eliminating some of the barriers, and streamlining the permitting process to expedite the expansion of broadband.
Johnson says if there was one silver lining in the cloud of the COVID-19 shutdown, it was that every policy maker–from local to national–suddenly realized the need for internet access.
Johnson said he hopes for bipartisan support for the measure.
He said no matter which side of the aisle you’re on, you surely know the need for broadband internet access for work, school and health.
