Agri-Pulse reports:

A new group of ag, tech, and healthcare groups hope to push the federal government to invest in rural broadband.

The new American Connection Project Broadband Coalition launched Wednesday with a letter to Capitol Hill and the White House calling for a "robust federal investment in broadband internet connectivity."

The group is led by Land O'Lakes and includes organizations ranging from farm groups like the American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Farmers Union to tech companies like HP and Microsoft.

Tina May, chief of staff to the CEO and vice president of rural services at Land O'Lakes, tells Agri-Pulse the group plans to study the different federal approaches to addressing rural broadband and offer recommendations on the path forward.
