Marsha Blackburn Report: Hard at work in Tennessee

 

U.S. SenateNashville, TN – It’s been a busy August in Tennessee! It has been a delight to visit nearly 40 different counties in the Volunteer State! Here’s a bit of what I’ve been working on lately.

In Marion County, I met with the Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative to learn how they are working on bringing broadband to unserved areas. Earlier this year, I introduced the bipartisan Internet Exchange Act, which will help improve internet access for consumers and expand rural broadband services. The sad truth is that many of our rural areas aren’t underserved–they’re unserved. It is time to change that.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 4

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I rolled into Ouray, Colorado on an early Sunday afternoon, mesmerized by the beauty of it all.  My first thought was that it looked like a little town in Switzerland.   Oddly enough, it’s known as the Switzerland of America. 

Go figure!

I was looking forward to seeing my friends, Kim and Craig Kotzen, and finally getting a chance to ride the incredible Million Dollar Highway. 

From the first day I started riding, my biker brothers and sisters have been telling me of all the great places to ride, and the “must do” events.

The Million Dollar Highway was on that list.
