President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, passed last month with the help of Georgia Democrats, will deliver millions of dollars to Georgia to ensure that every family has access to reliable high-speed internet through a historic investment in broadband infrastructure. The BIL’s transformative investment in broadband will uplift Georgians in every corner of the state and expand economic and educational opportunities in parts of Georgia that have been left behind — particularly in rural and low-income communities. Despite unanimous opposition from Georgia Republicans, the Biden-Harris administration has taken historic action to close the digital divide in the Peach State — all without raising taxes a single penny for middle-class families.
“For far too long, rural and low-income communities across Georgia have been left behind the digital divide, but thanks to the work of President Biden and Georgia Democrats, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will ensure that every Georgian has access to reliable and affordable internet access,” Rhyan Lake, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Georgia, said. “It is absolutely inexcusable that every single Georgia Republican voted against a bipartisan effort to expand broadband access in the Peach State. While the GOP keeps fighting to make the rich richer and block upgrades to our infrastructure, the Biden-Harris administration and Democrats are delivering once-in-a-generation investments to Georgia’s economy.”
