Pai Headed Out On 3-Day Mid-Atlantic Trip


Not exactly the type to let the grass grow under his feet, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is hitting the road again, and he’ll really be clocking up the miles on a Mid-Atlantic swing.

Starting in Wardensville, West Virginia, on Monday and ending in Crownsville, Maryland, on Wednesday, it will be a jam-packed itinerary. Along the way he’ll be making stops in West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland.

One key reason for the trip will be to meet with rural broadband providers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses to discuss how to work together to help close the country’s digital divide. Along the way, Pai will also be holding events with U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and representatives of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.
