Duffy Calls For USDA To Support Rural Broadband

Duffy Calls For USDA To Support Rural Broadband

 

Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Ranking Member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, recently wrote a letter to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, FDA, and Related Agencies requesting support for more support for rural broadband.

 

See the letter in its entirety below:

 

 

“Chairman Bishop and Ranking Member Fortenberry:

 

“As you consider Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 appropriations, I request level funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Telecommunications Infrastructure Loan Program.

 

“Broadband internet access is critical to the well-being of rural communities like those in Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District. These areas, oftentimes overlooked by larger internet service providers, still require internet connectivity to help area residents raise families, grow businesses, and stay interconnected.

 

“The benefits of broadband in these communities cannot be overstated. Internet access enables doctors to consult with patients remotely, businesses to engage with customers in a global marketplace, and for Wisconsin dairy farmers to produce more efficiently.

 

“Despite the obvious benefits of internet access, the Federal Communications Commission reports that broadband deployment in rural areas still lags behind urban areas. One barrier to rural broadband, often cited by telecommunications providers, is the steep cost of deploying broadband service in rural areas because there are too few customers to support that investment.

 

“That’s why it’s so critical that federal investments in rural broadband continue, so that we may assist in the buildout of these networks. If we are to ensure that rural areas have the support they need to continue to grow, then we must continue to support the creation of new and better broadband infrastructure in these areas.

 

“To help with that effort, I request level funding in FY2020 for the Telecommunications Infrastructure Loan Program. I appreciate the Committee’s past support of rural broadband programs and thank you for your consideration of this request.”

 

Statement Of Support

 

“Congressman Duffy has been a true supporter of rural broadband investment over the years and I’m glad to see he’s continuing his important work on the issue. USDA rural broadband programs, like the Telecommunications Infrastructure Loan Program, make it possible for Mosaic to offer service to underserved and unserved areas. Congressman Duffy’s support of these funds is critical to build out of our broadband infrastructure.” – Scott Behn, Mosaic Telecom CEO.

Sean Duffy Secures Disaster Relief Extension for Houses of Worship in Puerto Rico

 

Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Ranking Member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, and author of PROMESA, today released the following statement on FEMA’s announcement that Private Non-Profit Houses of Worship are eligible for disaster relief in Puerto Rico through March 17, 2019:

 

"I am pleased that FEMA has honored my request for an extension for private non-profit houses of worship to submit Requests for Public Assistance through May 17, 2019. In the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, churches of all denominations in Puerto Rico stepped up to the plate to assist with the recovery and rebuilding efforts. Their dedication to feeding the hungry and providing refuge to those who lost everything resulted in many private non-profit houses of worship having inadequate time or staff support to complete, or even begin, the request for public assistance process."

Duffy Leads Effort To Remove Unexploded Ordnance In Southeast Asia

 

Legislation also honors Hmong Freedom Fighters

 

Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, ranking member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today co-introduced bipartisan legislation to remove unexploded ordnance in southeast Asia. The legislation is co-introduced by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Foreign Affairs Committee Vice Chair Joaquin Castro (D-TX), and House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul (R-TX).

 

“I urge my Republican and Democrat colleagues to follow through on America’s commitment to remove unexploded ordnance from Southeast Asia,” said Congressman Duffy. “We have a moral obligation to assist with mine cleanup, because unexploded ordnance from the U.S. bombing campaign over the region still endangers people as they go about their daily lives. Additionally, I’m proud that this legislation honors the Hmong freedom fighters who fought alongside U.S. armed forces in the Vietnam War. Their service must always be remembered.”
