It's infrastructure week, finally

The White House said Wednesday that a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill negotiated with a bipartisan group of senators will include $65 billion dedicated to broadband expansion.

Missouri eyes IT overhaul with Rescue Plan funding

Missouri agency heads told state lawmakers this month that they’re banking on American Rescue Plan funding to propel a transformation of the state’s outdated information technology. At a state House subcommittee hearing earlier this month, Dan Huag, the state budget director, said the $2.8 billion in federal relief funding Missouri will receive could be spent on new IT infrastructure via a rule that allows states to allocate funding for revenue loss. And state CIO Jeffrey Wann said he wants government services to offer the "same experience that I had yesterday ordering pizza from Domino’s." Colin Wood has the story.
