Letter: Support the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Published: 10/18/2021 7:00:19 AM

When President Biden traveled around the country recently, he highlighted the need to bring broadband to every corner of America and I have to agree. The jobs of the future, like engineering and STEM careers, need students with digital skills.

It is estimated that the U.S. will need one million more STEM professionals over the next decade, and right now, too many are being left behind. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act would bring at least $100 million to NH to help expand broadband internet coverage to rural areas. We need to close the digital divide, and this bill helps make that possible.
