Rep. Golden hosts congressional hearing on rural broadband at UMM

 

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

As the first week of school came to a close, something unusual took place in Machias. Two U.S. congressmen sat behind microphones in a University of Maine at Machias classroom. A television camera focused on the congressmen, one of them swung a gavel, and so began a formal U.S. congressional field hearing.

The subject? Rural high-speed internet, or lack thereof.
