KFB President Mark Haney's Statement on Gov. Beshear's Proposed $50 Million Allocation for Rural Broadband Deployment

Posted on Jan 8, 2021

"I would like to thank Governor Beshear for allocating $50 million in his proposed budget to the broadband deployment fund. Expanding broadband service to unserved and underserved areas of the state has never been more important than it is right now. In order to utilize the technology available in today’s agricultural industry and to better serve our on-farm market customers we must have service to the last mile. These dollars would be a game changer for many of our farm families and rural community businesses."
