WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - Rural Minnesotans would have better access to broadband if the Senate's proposed budget goes through, thanks to a bipartisan amendment spearheaded by Senator Al Franken. Senators worked overnight to narrowly pass the budget plan after a 50-49 vote. Senators Franken and Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) introduced an amendment that would promote investment in broadband infrastructure in rural areas throughout the country.
