From the DCCC:

Jen Kiggans’ Extreme GOP Raised Monthly Internet Costs for Over 45,000 VA-02 Households

This weekend, full funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) officially expired – forcing 470,000 Virginia families to face stark price hikes on their monthly internet bills.

The ACP – a product of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – serves more than 45,000 households in Virginia’s 2nd District, lowering costs for monthly internet bills.

A recent survey conducted by the FCC found that more than two-thirds of beneficiaries to the ACP said they had inconsistent or no internet service prior to the program’s existence.

Meanwhile, a majority of House Republicans actively called for this program to sunset through their Republican Study Committee, whose budget calls for the end of the program.

While House Republicans like Jen Kiggans continue to cave to the demands of Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene, House Democrats have introduced common sense legislation to replenish the fund to keep monthly bills low for millions of Americans who rely on access to affordable internet.

Kiggans has shamelessly tried to mislead VA-02 voters by half-heartedly signing onto the bill, months after its introduction and one day after being called out for not supporting the bill. Kiggans is still refusing to disavow her extreme party’s previous efforts to end the program.

DCCC Spokesperson Lauryn Fanguen:
“At every turn, Jen Kiggans caves to her Republican party bosses by enabling their extreme agenda, even if it means letting her party raise internet costs for Coastal Virginia families. Kiggans’ misguided ‘priorities’ will cost her in November.”
