Senator Klobuchar recognizes need for ubiquitous broadband

KAAL News reports on Senator Amy Klobuchar’s comments on broadband with Axios co-founder Mike Allen…

“I have met with virtually superintendents all over my state and they say, which is about the state average, 10 to 15 percent of their students really can’t access learning right now. They couldn’t this spring and they’re not going to be able to in the fall,” Senator Klobuchar said.

Klobuchar is hoping improved infrastructure in the future could mean more access to internet for people from different social and economic backgrounds.
