Sen Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) introduced “Accessible, Affordable Internet for All,” a companion bill to Rep James Clyburn’s (D-SC) bill by the same name that’s aimed at closing the digital divide.

Components include an $80bln investment over five years to deploy broadband infrastructure, $5bln over five years for low-interest financing of broadband, and a $50 monthly discount on internet plans for low-income Americans. It also reserves $5bln for students without internet connections and authorizes funding for WiFi on school buses.
