Concerns Loading Over Broadband Expansion

Wisconsin lawmakers want answers about the state’s broadband expansion efforts.

The state’s Audit Committee yesterday pressed the Wisconsin Public Service Commission for answers about spending and record keeping on about 100 million-dollars worth of broadband projects. An audit last fall said the PSC didn’t have any documentation for most of the projects it looks at. State Senator Eric Wimberger said there is no evidence of wrongdoing yet, but he wants to know if any of the state’s internet money has actually been put to good use. Wimberger says it looks like the governor’s administration simply threw the money out the door.
