DCEDC supports bill to help rural areas develop broadband

Door and Kewaunee Counties would see improved efforts to develop broadband internet under a bill reintroduced in the U.S. Senate.   The Access to Capital Creates Economic Strength and Supports Rural American Act, also known as ACCESS, would help rural telecommunications companies submit streamlined reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler says that would help accelerate broadband development locally.
