Rep. John Joyce and Rep. Abby Finkenauer

When was the last time that you unfolded a map for directions before a road trip or required a postage stamp to send a photograph to a friend?

More likely than not, you have turned to a phone, tablet, or other device to complete these simple tasks. In the 21st century, the internet has become an integral part of Americans’ lives. Unfortunately, too many communities around the country lack access to this critical resource – including in the Congressional districts that we represent in Pennsylvania and Iowa, respectively.

Rep. John Joyce, who represents Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional District, is Republican Leader of the Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Rural Development, Agriculture, Trade, and Entrepreneurship. Rep. Abby Finkenauer, who represents Iowa’s 1st Congressional District, is Chairwoman of the Subcommittee.
