Rosen Leads Push to Fund Program to Lower Cost of High-Speed Internet

Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV), a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, led a group of 31 colleagues in urging Congressional leaders to extend funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program, which provides financial assistance to access high-speed internet for 247,231 households in Nevada and more than 21 million working families across the nation.
