(WNY News Now) – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney of NY-24 has unveiled her comprehensive Veterans Plan and Broadband Access Plan, demonstrating her commitment to supporting veterans and ensuring rural broadband connectivity.
D.C. – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, representing NY-24, unveiled a dual initiative aimed at bolstering support for veterans and addressing the digital divide in rural communities. Tenney’s Veterans Plan encompasses a range of measures to enhance veterans’ lives, including promoting transparency and accountability within the VA system, expanding veterans’ healthcare access, facilitating their transition to civilian life, and honoring their service.
In tandem, Tenney introduced her Broadband Access Plan, a response to New York’s inadequate broadband competition. Earlier, Tenney co-sponsored the American Broadband Deployment Act, designed to simplify the permitting process for broadband and wireless communication facilities. The plan outlines her resolute commitment to bringing fast, reliable, and affordable broadband to every corner of NY.
Tenney’s bipartisan Remembering Our Local Heroes Act, reintroduced this week, further reinforces her veterans’ initiative. It seeks funding to uphold the legacies of veterans, firefighters, and law enforcement officers, in line with her core veterans’ plan.
Congresswoman Tenney stated, “Today, I unveiled my Broadband Access Plan and Veterans Plan, which underscore my unwavering dedication to bridging the digital divide in our rural communities and honoring the service of our nation’s brave veterans. As a Marine Mom, I am committed to ensuring our veterans have the resources and federal support they need to reintegrate into society and access their hard-earned benefits. In addition, I am working to cut through bureaucratic red tape preventing the expansion of affordable rural broadband and supporting legislation to give NY-24 access to fast, dependable, and affordable broadband options.”
