Real work on broadband begins now
9 Dec 2021
Now that President Biden has signed the infrastructure bill into law, the pundits are pivoting to ask whether this victory will lift his political stock. A better question is, “How can Delaware make sure this victory lifts up vulnerable families across our state?”
Biden’s bipartisan bill will deliver $1.425 billion to Delaware, money that can be used to repair the 19 bridges and over 250 miles of highway in poor condition. The bill also provides $100 million for broadband deployment across our state, with millions more to help low-income residents secure fast and reliable internet access.
