In his latest “Mullin’ it Over” column to constituents, Oklahoma Rep. Markwayne Mullin touched on two subjects—high energy costs and his attempts to expand broadband coverage in eastern Oklahoma.

The U.S. Senate candidate said inflation, supply chain issues and higher energy costs have brought optimism among small business owners to the lowest it has been in over nine years.

“I hear and feel the concerns of Oklahomans as we live under the Biden Administration, and I still remain truly optimistic about the road that lies ahead,” wrote Rep. Mullin.

On another topic, rural broadband service, the congressman said less than half the residents of his second congressional district have access to broadband Internet. It’s why he introduced the Funding Affordable Internet with Reliable Contributions Act to study the impact Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have on rural costs and network availability.

“This bill will provide Congress with crucial information as we continue to examine the possibility of requiring these edge providers to contribute to FCC’s Universal Service Fund, which is used to increase broadband access in rural areas. Click here to read more,” he stated.
