Klobuchar says policymakers need to focus on issues that bridge urban/rural divide – like broadband

The Worthington Globe publishes an editorial from Senator Amy Klobuchar…

Standing up for farmers and for our rural communities is an important way to break down the urban/rural divide that exists in America. That’s why policy makers in Washington must continue to focus on the issues that need to be addressed in rural America — like rural housing, health care, the need for consistently reliable mobile phone service, access to broadband internet and consistent agricultural policies that allow farmers to make a good living, take care of their land, and to be able to pass on their farm to their family and kids.
