Property Rights Key For Broadband Expansion

Property Rights Key For Broadband Expansion

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The second part of the fall veto session is coming in a few weeks and the Illinois Farm Bureau says for now it doesn’t seem to be a period where much that was done will impact agriculture.

Mark Gebhards, Executive Director of Governmental Affairs with the IFB, says one key issue right now is the planned expansion of broadband. According to Gebhards they are working closely with telecommunications companies to make sure that property rights can be kept as internet speeds improve.

There is a broadband expansion working group that is preparing a report on the best way to move forward. The IFB is a part of the group.
