Two U.S. senators are introducing a bill they say will improve student access to the Internet outside of the classroom.

Maine’s independent Sen. Angus King and West Virginia Republican Shelley Moore Capito are introducing the Digital Learning Equity Act of 2015. They say the bill would support states and school districts that pilot “creative methods to increase student access” to digital resources outside of school.

The senators say nearly a third of low-income households with school age children lack a high speed Internet connection. They describe the lack of digital resources as “the homework gap” and say it disproportionately impacts minority and rural students.

The senators say the legislation is endorsed by numerous educational associations.
