Improving broadband Internet technology access in Iowa

Posted:
Lawmakers in the Iowa House are moving forward with legislation that would provide incentives for improving broadband Internet technology access in the state.

The House Commerce Committee approved the bill Monday, and moves to the ways and means committee for review. Under the proposal, companies that invest in broadband infrastructure could receive a property tax break. The legislation is a top priority for Governor Terry Branstad during this legislative session.
  
The state Senate is also reviewing a broadband bill that includes income tax breaks and a loan fund for businesses making broadband investments
