From the opening statement of Marsha Blackburn: "Welcome to the subcommittee's first hearing of the new year. And I must say, we are off to a very promising start. We wanted to have a very inclusive hearing today to discuss all of the great ideas from subcommittee members on both of sides of aisle to create broadband infrastructure deployment, and a goal of closing the digital divide. Whether you agree or disagree with any individual idea, it is so important that we get the conversation started, and we have got a lot to talk about with 25 bills introduced in time to be a part of today's hearing. I very much appreciate all of the thoughtful proposals and the great work from the staff of both the Republican and the Democrat side, and I look forward to seeing progress as we move through the next few weeks."
