Action Alert: Urge Approval of BadgerNet Contract Extension Now

WLA has respectfully asked the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) to grant a 5-year extension of the contract with the Wisconsin BadgerNet Access Alliance because it is critical to the completion of the federal BadgerNet Fiber Grant and will ensure that our libraries and schools have the bandwidth they need at an affordable price.

WLA asks you to read the background information and write to your State Senator and Representative as soon as possible. Copy Governor Jim Doyle on your letter. Be sure to personalize your message with local examples of the need for and benefits of additional bandwidth in your area. In other words, describe how your legislators' constituents will benefit from this grant. More information on the grant is on the DPI website at

To find out who your legislators are, go to and type in your address. Governor Jim Doyle's address is 115 East State Capitol, PO Box 7863, Madison, WI 53702. Send your letter today if possible.
