$100 million in statewide broadband expansion

Access to the internet is an essential service just like our electricity. Our kids need it to participate in class, our businesses need it to connect to customers, and our communities rely on it to provide services to their people. My budget invests over $100 million in broadband expansion statewide, with a focus on providing access to communities that have been disproportionately impacted during the pandemic, and ensuring every single school across Oregon is connected to the internet.

Broadband expansion could mend the urban rural divide

This could be a bridge that helps Oregon mend the urban rural divide. And the disparities in access aren't just a problem here, but across the country. The Biden-Harris administration can help unite this unnecessary division, especially in the west, by providing federal funding for broadband expansion.

Invest in critical infrastructure, including internet access

We must continue to invest in critical infrastructure. Mississippi's roads and bridges need our attention. From ports to potholes, we must continue to be intentional about improving our infrastructure. And we cannot forget the next great generational infrastructure issue: internet access. We must continue to find innovative ways to allow all of Mississippi to connect. No one should be left behind.

Diverting $600M to Strategic Infrastructure Investment Fund

In order to create $600M over 5 years for the Strategic Infrastructure Investment Fund legislative leaders are contradicting their stated commitment to growing the state's reserve fund. "The goal is to reinstate the 2% set aside such that we only spend 98%," Lt. Gov. Reeves said in late November. "We also want to maintain and build our state's financial reserves." Reeves' new infrastructure proposal would accomplish the opposite. The new proposal would divert that entire 2% to the new fund.
