Background: For most individuals in the state, the internet is widely available. Unfortunately, this is not a reality for many living in rural parts of the state.
Summary: This bill sets up a grant program to help fund broadband projects across the state with already existing funds. If passed, SB18-002 would help bring broadband services to the parts of the state who do not have access. This access would then provide the opportunity for these areas to implement the use of services like telehealth and e-prescribe. These services would provide more health coverage to rural Colorado.
