During Governor Parson’s State of the State Address, Parson talked about expanding broadband, specifically in rural Missouri. State Representative Bill Hardwick, a republican from Waynesville voiced his support of the proposal by Governor Parson.

Governor Parson called for $400 million toward broadband expansion projects statewide during his State of The State Address, which would be the single largest broadband investment in state history.

This proposal would connect 75,000 households, expand access to rural areas and underserved urban areas, and update and expand wireless networks across the state.
