Sen Klobuchar Highlights Broadband Mapping at Senate Broadband Caucus Event
Sen Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and her fellow Senate Broadband Caucus co-chairs hosted a panel about broadband mapping titled, “Broadband Mapping: Discussing Challenges and Solutions.” At the event, Sen Klobuchar highlighted her bill with Sens Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and John Hoeven (R-ND) to improve the Federal Communication Commission’s broadband coverage maps and help close the digital divide. The bipartisan Improving Broadband Mapping Act would give policymakers more accurate data—including consumer reported data, and state and local data—on broadband coverage nationwide. “As we work to close the digital divide and bring high-speed internet to communities across the country, it’s critical that we have a clear and accurate understanding of where broadband is available. Improving the accuracy of the FCC’s broadband maps is a top priority for me, and it’s a top priority for Minnesota,” Sen Klobuchar said.
