(WHEC/WGRZ) — On Friday, New York State Assemblyman Sean Ryan provided an update on a new broadband bill that passed through the State Assembly and Senate two weeks ago.
The broadband bill would expand access to affordable broadband across the state.
According to our Buffalo affiliate, Assemblyman Ryan says the bill should be sent to Governor Cuomo within the next 30 days. The bill calls for a one-year study of broadband availability across the state, which will be conducted by the public service commission.
Ryan emphasized the importance of it now that schools have issued hybrid learning plans in various districts across the state.
