Every Alabamian should have access to high-speed broadband internet. So much in medicine, banking, and education occurs online these days, and communities without high-speed access risk being left behind. Businesses looking to open or expand in Alabama tell me that broadband access is critical to their decision about where to locate. I have fought for additional broadband funding for Alabama communities through the appropriations process and the Farm Bill, and I will continue to do so at every opportunity.
