Connect Every Iowan
In September 2013, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds launched their plan to Connect Every Iowan to the life-enhancing benefits of high-speed Internet. The goal is to position Iowa as the top broadband-connected Midwestern state, ready to support new businesses while providing the highest quality education and healthcare services available.
The Governor is charging the existing STEM Advisory Council's Broadband Committee with the creation of a broadband expansion plan. He wants to see the plan in place and reaping successful results by January 1, 2015.
Connect Iowa will served in an executive leadership role, working with the Committee as it drafts new legislative recommendations for the 2014 session that will support the expansion of broadband access, adoption, and use across the state.
