Closing the digital divide will continue to be a top priority of mine in the Senate. You can’t have 21st century healthcare, 21st century education, or a 21st century economy without 21st century internet that can be accessed by Tennesseans in the rural countryside as well as big cities and towns. Additionally, as more of our business is conducted online, consumers are realizing how much data companies have compiled regarding their habits and preferences. I agree with Tennesseans who demand their privacy be protected in an internet ecosystem where everybody is playing by the same set of rules. As a member of the Commerce, Science and Transportation; Judiciary; and Armed Services Committees, I will have the opportunity to be in the center of the major technology policy debates taking place in the United States Senate for years to come.
