This Wednesday, the House passed an infrastructure bill, the Moving Forward Act (H.R. 2), containing strong provisions to expand broadband access, make it more affordable, and create and protect good jobs across the country.
"The only thing that can keep us connected to our families, friends, and communities while staying safe during a pandemic is an internet connection," said CWA President Chris Shelton. "For working people, a reliable internet connection is not optional – it's an absolute necessity. It's past time for Mitch McConnell and the Senate to act on this key issue. If they don't, we must hold them accountable – and make sure that the Moving Forward Act becomes the new baseline for expanding broadband access across the country."
