As a senior member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Larsen recently voted for the Moving Forward Act, a comprehensive, long-term package to provide significant investment in broadband infrastructure and the State Digital Equity Capacity Grant program. He is also a cosponsor of the BRIDGE Act, which provides grants to states and tribes to deploy affordable, high-speed broadband to underserved areas.
