California: Call Your Lawmakers And Tell Them to Support the Governor's Broadband Plan

California state

Governor Gavin Newsom has a plan to spend $7 billion on broadband infrastructure. Urge your lawmakers to support this plan to close the digital divide.

Gov. Newsom's plan would finance giving every single Californian a fiber connection to the Internet over the next 5 years, allow the state to address an urgent broadband crisis worsened by the pandemic, and give us a way to start closing the digital divide now. Tell your lawmakers to support this plan and vote to give the state the authority to begin this process now.
