Last month, we passed the historic COVID-relief bill, the American Rescue Plan. While there are plenty of things that excite me about this legislation, today I want to tell you more about the influence it will have on broadband in Virginia, especially for our state’s rural communities.

Since I began serving in Congress, I’ve led multiple efforts to expand internet access to everyone in Central Virginia’s rural communities and in underserved areas nationwide. Reliable access to high-speed broadband internet provides critical economic and educational opportunities, and we must fight for it to become accessible to all, no matter where someone lives.

The American Rescue Plan has the potential to make great strides in the attempt to expand broadband. The current package includes $17 billion in funding for the expansion of high-speed broadband internet networks.

Even after the pandemic, this major investment will continue to benefit Americans, especially those living in rural communities.

Our district will benefit profoundly from broadband expansion. Whether you are working from home in Louisa or managing a farm in Culpeper, reliable internet access is critical.

Earlier this month, I was in Spotsylvania for a ribbon cutting to celebrate a new 5G broadband project. Attending the event, I was excited to think about how the local community will be transformed by introducing accessible internet. And I want to expand this across all of Central Virginia.

That’s why I’m working so hard to make it a priority in Congress.

If you also feel passionate about expanding broadband and other initiatives that will help Virginians, please consider donating to my reelection campaign. I want to stay in Congress to fight for you and the issues we care about→
