Vice President Harris started the week on Monday, May 24, with a meeting on expanding high-speed internet access.
Expanding broadband availability is a key component of the American Jobs Plan, the administration’s infrastructure proposal. From Rev’s transcript of the event:
….let’s talk about what we need to do to remove the barriers to access. 42 million Americans live in areas without reliable broadband. One in three Americans who live in rural areas and tribal lands do not have access to broadband. And we know that these Americans are not alone.
