Western Governors Meet Next Week in Wyoming

The Western Governors Association next week kicks off its annual meeting in Jackson, Wyo., with an agenda that is heavy on technology planning and policy.

David Barram, head of the U.S. General Services Administration, is scheduled to talk to state officials about national and regional electronic commerce efforts and explain how technology is being harnessed to deliver electronic government services.

Governors Jim Geringer (R-Wyo.) and Edward Schafer (R-N.D.) will walk participants through a demonstration of the Health Passport, a cross-jurisdictional project to deliver health and welfare program benefits via a single smart card.

The WGA meeting also will feature a demonstration from a Wyoming rancher who uses remote sensing and imaging in day-to-day operations.

A Powell, Wyo., banker will discuss rural communities' use of technology. The session will close with a forum on obstacles and opportunities for broadening the use of technology in the Western United States.

The meeting runs June 13-15.
