Gov. Wolf Continues Push for Broadband Internet
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WENY) -- Governor Tom Wolf is pushing his plan for rural broadband across the Keystone State.
Wolf's administration says nearly a million people in Pennsylvania don't have reliable high-speed internet.
The democrat's push is part of a bigger $4.5 billion proposal to overhaul infrastructure statewide.
The four-year plan would also address issues like controlling floodwaters and fighting blight.
Wolf wants to pay for it with the severance tax on Marcellus shale drilling, but the Republican Majority in Harrisburg opposes the plan.
