Manchin Applauds Trump Order On Expanding Broadband Access


Senator Joe Manchin applauded President Trump for an executive order aimed at expanding broadband access in rural communities in West Virginia.

The Register Herald reports the executive action directs federal agencies to remove obstacles to broadband deployment. It also reduces barriers to investment in broadband infrastructure.

Even though Senator Joe Manchin applauds President Trump’s efforts, he still believes that more needs to be done.

Manchin says, “West Virginia businesses and communities need reliable broadband access to compete in the 21st century economy”.
