HARRISBURGToday, the Pennsylvania Capital-Star reported Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration has yet to spend almost two-thirds of the $104 million Pennsylvania received from the federal CARES Act dedicated to improve internet connectivity, including rural broadband access, for K-12 and college students across Pennsylvania. In response, House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff of Centre and Mifflin counties is calling on the Wolf administration to rapidly deploy the remaining funding to help provide rural broadband access and ensure those students who are turning to online education either by choice or because their schools are starting with an online model can have better connectivity and receive the educational opportunities to which they are entitled.

REP. KERRY BENNINGHOFF
