CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - The White House is offering more details about President Barack Obama’s visit Wednesday to Iowa.

According to a news release Monday night, Obama will visit Cedar Falls and speak on the issue of increasing access to affordable, high-speed broadband.

Republican Gov. Terry Branstad has long supported efforts to expand broadband access in rural Iowa, and the issue is expected to be addressed in the legislative session that began Monday. Previous efforts to use tax breaks to encourage broadband expansion in the state have failed.

The White House says Obama’s speech will be streamed live at www.whitehouse.gov/live.
