MO lawmaker wants state to ramp up its broadband internet expansion efforts soon. – Newstalk KZRG –

The lack of high-speed internet access in Missouri is a problem lawmakers have been fighting to improve for a while. 

A special House interim committee discussing the expansion of broadband internet around the state is holding a hearing Monday. 

Committee chairman, Representative Louis Riggs of Hannibal, wants the state to ramp up its efforts – soon.  

Riggs also wants to boost digital literacy. 

He says even though people might have the access, many don’t understand how to make the access work in a way that is going to help them.
