  • Last week, the H.R. 2, the Agriculture Appropriations Bill (also known as the “Farm Bill”) failed to pass the House of Representatives. The bill failed when a group of lawmakers stated they would not support the bill without a commitment that votes on certain immigration-related measures would be scheduled immediately. As we reported (Vol. XV; Issue 21), the bill allocates $620 million for broadband deployment in rural areas.
