Farm Bureau Pushing Congress for More Broadband

The Missouri Farm Bureau wants to see Congress concentrate on expanding access to high-speed Internet to rural Missourians.

Congress included some funding in its coronavirus-relief package for broadband expansion, but Eric Bohl with the Farm Bureau says obstacles remain to get high-speed Internet to remote areas of the state.

Bohl says a study by the FCC about four years ago found that more than a million rural Missourians didn’t have access to the Internet, more than any states other than California and Texas.
