During his weekly radio address, State Senator Dan Hegeman of Cosby discussed Governor Eric Greitens recent announcement regarding rural broadband. Hegeman says Greitens wants broadband for everyone.
Hegeman says this is only the first step towards the end goal.
He wants schools to participate without spending a penny by getting help from the federal government and the state of Missouri.
Hegeman adds he hopes this effort by the state and federal government will spark more commitment by broadband technology companies to help serve rural communities.
