WORTHINGTON - Sen. Amy Klobuchar will visit Worthington at 10:45 a.m. Sunday to meet with public officials about the issue of rural phone call reliability.
Klobuchar’s bipartisan bill - the Improving Rural Call Quality and Reliability Act - aims to improve rural call completion by directing the Federal Communications Commission to establish basic quality standards for providers that transmit voice calls to ensure businesses, families and emergency responders can count on phone calls being completed.
After the meeting, Klobuchar will meet with residents in Slayton and Luverne.
The visit is part of a two-day “Rural Economy Tour.” On Saturday, Klobuchar will first visit St. Peter High School and meet with Redwood Area Hospital staff before hosting an economic development meeting with tru Shrimp Company in Balaton at 3 p.m. Afterward, she will meet with Gaylord and Pipestone residents.
