Georgia EMC President commends Governor Kemp

Statement from Georgia EMC President and CEO Dennis Chastain commending Governor Kemp for signing the Georgia Broadband Opportunity Act 

“The EMCs eagerly look forward to working with the Public Service Commission as an integral partner to expand access to broadband in rural Georgia, while keeping our neediest and most vulnerable citizens from shouldering the burden of that progress.  

“Gov. Kemp understands the needs of rural Georgia and the critical role of EMCs with infrastructure in some of Georgia’s least populated and most rural counties.  

“The EMCs are fully invested with staff and technical resources dedicated to one goal: working with PSC Commissioners and staff to help solve the digital divide while simultaneously protecting rural Georgians, our EMC members, from unfair subsidies and increasing energy costs.  This is even more critical now, as entire communities of EMC consumers struggle from the financial fallout of COVID-19.”
