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.
