For much of the past decade, West Virginia’s patchy and outdated internet infrastructure has been identified as one of the biggest things holding the state back.
But now, West Virginia is on the verge of taking a historic step forward with the passage of House Bill 3093 which would give communities, consumers, and internet providers a range of tools to support innovative and creative ways to increase broadband access across West Virginia.
Both the senate and the house have passed the bill.
Just one more thing has to happen. Governor Jim Justice has to sign the bill into law.
With a transformative victory for the state so close, we need you to take this simple action to urge Governor Justice to take the final step and sign House Bill 3093.
West Virginians of all ages depend on the internet for work, education, and healthcare. Broadband access is imperative to creating the kinds of jobs and communities West Virginia requires in the 21st century.
