Texas Legislative Rural Caucus Highlights Online Connectivity Importance for Texas Families



"We are counting on you to help ensure that this invaluable Affordable Connectivity Program funding does not expire."

AUSTIN, Texas (Texas Insider Report) — With Congress now back in session in Washington, D.C. following their August recess, they (and you) may have missed the Texas Legislative Rural Caucus's Letter to Sen. Ted Cruz that highlights the importance of the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program established by President Donald Trump. It has transitioned into the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) for rural communities and the families that live there.

Because of its importance to citizens who live in the rural areas across the state, the Texas Legislative Rural Caucus recently sent a letter to Senator Ted Cruz (below,) highlighting the benefits of the American Connectivity Program, saying:
 
“Texas has lived up to its promise by taking measures to expand broadband throughout the Lone Star State, but now we are counting on you to help ensure that this invaluable Affordable Connectivity Program funding does not expire.

"If Congress does not take action, nearly half a million Texans enrolled in ACP would likely lose their connectivity if the program were allowed to expire.

"We appreciate your continual support for Rural Texans.”

Suzanne Bellsnyder, editor of The Reporter-Statesman in the Texas Panhandle, in her article entitled "Rural Texans Deserve Broadband," focused on the issue, saying, “Every Texan deserves broadband access – regardless of their place of residency or socioeconomic status.”
