BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Senator Susan Collins is co-sponsoring legislation that would provide up to 15-billion dollars in matching grants to help expand rural broadband access.

Collins says the grants would be used to help states and state-approved entities build infrastructure to bring high-speed broadband directly to underserved areas.

Federal funding would be matched through public-private partnerships between broadband service providers and states.
