BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Benjamin Cardin will tour a public computer center at Coppin State University in Baltimore.

The senators will join U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on Friday to announce a new web portal to help increase computer and Internet skills in the United States.

They will tour the Coppin Heights-Rosemont Family Computer Center, which is funded by the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program. The program is a recovery act initiative that is investing $4 billion in building or upgrading broadband networks and enhancing public computer centers. The initiative is administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
