Graves Announces House Approval of E-BRIDGE Act

Missouri 6th District Congressman Sam Graves says the House has approved an E-BRIDGE Act which, he says, will help spur projects that attract jobs and businesses to expand economic development opportunities across North Missouri. The Eliminating Barriers to Rural Internet Development Grant Eligibility Act is intended to remove hurdles for broadband projects under Economic Development grants and allow local communities to partner with the private sector to carry out broadband projects and allow flexibility for communities to meet funding match requirements.
