Infrastructure & Technology
Connecting the Last Best Place to the rest of the country and the world requires strong, reliable, and up-to-date infrastructure and technology. Investments in roads, bridges, and airports ensure that Montana’s communities remain safely linked. Access to reliable internet and television broadcasts ensures Montana businesses can succeed in a modern economy, and gives folks the opportunity to connect across the state and beyond. As a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Technology, Jon is leading the charge in providing rural America with access to the same technology and resources given to urban areas.
Jon is backing the Broadband DATA Act, which expands rural broadband coverage by directing the Federal Communications Commission to build more accurate broadband coverage maps. In order to reinstate Net Neutrality, Jon is a cosponsor of the Save the Internet Act of 2019, ensuring rural communities remain competitive when selling products online. And to make sure rural America isn’t left behind, Jon is fighting to make sure Montana and other rural communities are at the forefront of consideration in the race to develop a nationwide 5G wireless network.
