Blackburn Statement on Telecommunications Networks After Nashville Bombing

December 29, 2020

“The bombing in Nashville illustrates the continued danger posed by bad actors to disrupt telecommunications networks critical to the American economy. Preventing potentially more serious future attacks on our homeland requires deeper partnerships with the private sector. Earlier this year, the Senate Commerce Committee unanimously approved my Internet Exchange Act, which would enhance our domestic networks by making them more resilient, redundant, and interconnected. I look forward to working with my colleagues to advance this bill to further strengthen our communications infrastructure.”  U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R—Tenn.)
