Ted Budd: Co-sponsored bill to make websites and apps ADA compliant

In a press release announcing the legislation, Rep. Budd said: "Every year, thousands of website accessibility lawsuits are filed by plaintiffs alleging that certain websites were not ADA compliant. Our bill solves that problem by providing guidance to businesses on how to bring their websites into compliance. If our bill is passed, job-creators will be able to avoid costly lawsuits and be given a roadmap for how to help their disabled customers access online content."

Cal Cunningham: Invest in high-speed broadband, other infrastructure

Let's use the next phase of investment to help the nation get back on its feet to meet the unmet infrastructure needs of our time, not just high-speed broadband but also bringing schools, roads and bridges up to date. Doing so would save and create well-paying jobs putting people to work on these needed projects. Communities would benefit from this kind of investment now, and in the future. It will help businesses and families alike.

Roy Cooper: Public/private team up for rural internet access

Too many North Carolinians lack the internet connection they need to apply for jobs, do homework or run a small business. Among households without broadband, about 95% are in rural areas, a digital divide with very real consequences. I'm asking you to join me in an expansive effort to complete rural broadband projects. We can leverage public/private partnerships to bridge the digital divide and connect all parts of our state to opportunity.

Bev Perdue: 46,000 students in NC Virtual Public High School

We are providing a 21st century education imbedded with technology, more career and academic choices for students of all ages--and have established a new level of accountability for our teachers and administrators.

Today, 46,000 high school students are taking courses from the NC Virtual Public School. Teachers are using handheld computers to determine what a child knows, or needs to know, so the child can get the help needed, before falling behind and being unable to catch up.
