New Missouri Economic Chief Says “Broadband will Flourish Statewide”

(Missourinet) Missouri’s new broadband chief says he’s really looking forward to getting the entire state connected.

BJ Tanksley was named director of the state’s Department of Economic Development in January.

He comes to the state from Missouri Farm Bureau where he says he advocated for rural Missourians and understands their needs.

He says the Infrastructure Act, along with already budgeted funds, will be a game changer for rural broadband.
