    MONTPELIER — The state of Vermont is dissolving the state office responsible for expanding broadband computer access in the state by moving those responsibilities into the Agency of Commerce and Community Affairs.

    The role of the office called Connect Vermont had been to create and expand high-speed broadband access statewide by the end of this year.

    The office of Gov. Peter Shumlin said the commerce agency will continue the efforts to expand broadband services and monitor the progress while assisting service providers.

    Shumlin said expanding broadband services remains one of his top priorities.

    The changes follow the resignation of former Connect Vermont chief Karen Marshall, who left her post in state government earlier this month to become the president of the VTel Data Network.
