- Trump’s rural broadband goal won’t be easy. It will be costly
By Mark Niquette and Alan Bjerga - Monday Jul 3, 2017
President Trump has promised to expand broadband service to rural areas as part of his $1 trillion nationwide infrastructure plan.Without it, you’re asking farmers and ranchers to operate a viable business without modern technology,’’ said R.J. Karney, director of congressional relations for the American Farm Bureau Federation in Washington.Trump pledged during a trip to Iowa in June that his infrastructure plan will include a provision “to promote and foster, enhance broadband access for rural America.”Overall, the administration will call for $200 billion in federal spending over 10 years on public works of all types — and seek to leverage at least $800 billion in spending by states, localities and the private sector.Approaches suggested by political officials and advocates include making grants and loans to towns or rural cooperatives, extending tax credits to lure for-profit companies into under-served areas, and holding “reverse auctions” in which providers bid on public money that’s offered to bring service to specified areas for the lowest cost.The $80 billion cost for reaching all residential and business locations that lack access to fiber or cable broadband can be slashed by being slightly less ambitious, according to a paper released in January by Paul de Sa, former chief of the Federal Communications Commission’s Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis.Investment in broadband is probably more beneficial than funding other areas of infrastructure because the U.S. is “just beginning to realize the potential innovation and productivity gains” it offers, de Sa said in the paper.Brian Whitacre, an agricultural economist at Oklahoma State University who has studied the economic impact of rural broadband, equates it to the drive for rural electrification in the 1930s — a necessity for daily life.[...] Mark Jamison, director of the Public Utility Research Center at the University of Florida and a member of Trump’s FCC transition team, said the benefit of direct funding hasn’t been proven to outweigh spending for other purposes.Some of the $7.2 billion spent on rural broadband in President Barack Obama’s 2009 stimulus bill was wasted, said Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, the top Democrat on the House Agriculture Committee.

- VA seeks to funnel more nursing home money to rural areas
By MATT VOLZ, Associated Press - Monday Aug 21, 2017
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin said Monday during a visit to Montana that his agency will propose changes to make it easier for rural areas to receive funding to build nursing homes for veterans.Rural areas are often bypassed under the agency's existing guidelines for awarding grants for veterans' homes, Shulkin told reporters after touring VA facilities and meeting with veterans in Helena."If we don't change the rules to make sure that being in a rural area increases the likelihood of funding, we're not going to get to be able to help residents of Montana," Shulkin said.
