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.

Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Tennessee – August 18th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateNashville, TN – Middle Tennessee and East Tennessee are both home to some of the prettiest country in the state–and some seriously hard workers! I spent another week hearing from local leaders and business owners about some of the area’s biggest challenges, and brainstorming ways to keep the economy thriving.

I stopped by the female-owned Crescent Sock Company in McMinn County. The owners’ ancestors played a big role in the women’s suffrage movement. Cathy and Sandra are descendants of Harry T. Burn, a local lawmaker whose vote made Tennessee the 36th and final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment.
