April 7, 2017
Press Release

La Crosse, WI – In a recent segment on RFD – TV, a station devoted to covering rural issues, Rep. Kind highlighted the negative impact the Trump Administration’s budget blueprint would have on rural communities.

 

The blueprint makes drastic cuts to programs that create jobs and assist rural Wisconsin communities and families, including a 21% cut to USDA. The cut to the USDA budget would likely negatively impact access to rural broadband, rural economic development grants, and programs essential for clean and reliable drinking water systems.
