Rep Cramer and Sen Daines Introduce Reprioritizing Unserved Rural Areas and Locations for Broadband Act
Rep Kevin Cramer (R-ND) introduced the Reprioritizing Unserved Rural Areas and Locations (RURAL) for Broadband Act. The RURAL Broadband Act ensures government resources are being used as efficiently as possible while developing broadband networks in rural areas. The bill prioritizes the Rural Utility Service (RUS) funds to unserved areas over underserved areas which are already receiving some Universal Service Fund (USF) resources. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) introduced identical language as a bill in the Senate, S. 2970.
