Each year, our legislative session is a real event. For many state leaders, much of what they normally do is temporarily put aside while they collaborate and work on the issues associated with budgeting and bill-making. I’m actually glad to see our legislature more engaged and interested in the issues associated with digital government. This year, the Senate set aside time to recognize the accomplishments of Utah.gov and the new Transparency website. There are several dozen bills that either add new services or propose modifications to existing online services. This year, several of those are really focused on integrating these online services with actual business processes. That’s good. Overall, it hasn’t been a bad session and many have worked together to minimized the negative impact of budget cuts.
