Bruce Lunsford: Supports net neutrality; McConnell stalled it

Q: There is a growing push for Congress to codify the issue of “net neutrality” which guarantees that broadband networks cannot use their networks to give preferential fast lane access to any content provider. Where do you stand on this issue?

LUNSFORD: Mitch McConnell appears to be one of the reasons that bills with net neutrality language have stalled in congress. I would support the inclusion of net neutrality language as part of needed consumer-friendly telecommunications reform.

Steve Beshear: Ideas are the foundation of any new economy

Ideas are the foundation of any new economy. Research and technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, alternative energy--here are areas we must compete in, especially with energy, given our natural resources. Encouraging new ideas, entrepreneurs and creative thinkers is what others have been doing with great results. Kentucky has no more time to play catch-up. Unless we get our financial house in order and chart a new course, Kentucky stands little chance of succeeding in this new economy.
