Tuesday, February 09, 2021
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Lawmakers are proposing a bill that would help expand broadband to everyone in the state.
Eight House Democrats are sponsoring the bill, also known as the Connect New Mexico Act.
It would give $950,000 to the state Department of Information Technology to create a new broadband division.
"And that division can coordinate state and local and federal resources to get every community in New Mexico connected," said Rep. Natalie Figueroa.
