Rep. McNerney Continues Fight for Veterans with Bipartisan Broadband Bill

Oct 10, 2017, Press Release (Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09), a longtime champion for veterans, continued his fight for our nation’s heroes by introducing H.R. 3995, the Improving Broadband Access for Veterans Act of 2017.

This bipartisan legislation, which is co-sponsored by Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), directs the Federal Communications Commission to produce a report examining the current state of veterans’ access to broadband and what can be done to increase access, with a focus on low-income veterans and those living in rural areas. The report must be completed within one year of the bill’s enactment and include findings and recommendations for Congress.
