Americans have been too willing to share their personal data
Blunt spoke about threats to cybersecurity. He has introduced legislation to improve data protection. He said afterward that stealing information has been made easier by how willing Americans have been to share their personal data.ÿ "All of us probably
checked 'Agree' too many times," he said.
Blunt closed his speech saying it is "futile" to pursue security without liberty, and he suggested the Trans-Pacific Partnership would be one way to expand freedom worldwide.

MoBroadbandNow: Bring broadband to every corner of our state
Last year, I said that we needed to bring broadband to every corner of our state. We all know that technology drives today's job market. We live in a high-speed, digital world, where the most tech-savvy, early adapters will succeed. Soon, 88
Missouri counties will be better connected, at faster speeds, to each other and to the world. High-speed broadband will have a dramatic impact on our economy, and on our quality of life.
It will connect tens of thousands of homes in rural
Missouri to a network of vital community services like fire and police, schools and hospitals, libraries and government.
The competition for federal funds was steep. But our MoBroadbandNow partnership was a stunning success. More than
$260 million will be coming to Missouri, which in turn will generate tens of millions of dollars in new investment, and create thousands of new jobs.
