Interior Department Extends Access to Broadband

Americans in Rural Areas are the Focus of New Joint Effort.

The Interior Department announced on Tuesday that it would be focusing its efforts to expand access to broadband internet to Americans who are living in rural areas. A joint effort of the Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Parks Service will begin to make it easier for the internet infrastructure to be put in place. 

According to Deputy Secretary Katharine MacGregor, “High-speed internet connectivity is essential for education, economic opportunity, health, and public safety – especially as we continue to respond to the challenges of COVID-19. Facilitating greater broadband access and reducing wildfire risks for the benefit of rural and underserved communities is truly a bipartisan issue and I hope these common-sense rules are carried forward by the incoming administration.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Interior Department as it works to extend the access to to all Americans.
  • That God would help the transition of the presidential administration to be smooth for the Department. 
  • For the Lord to guide Deputy Secretary MacGregor as she helps lead the Department.
