Florida IT task force meets

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's newly appointed Information Service Technology Development Task Force held its first official meeting Oct. 15-16 in Orlando, Fla.

The 34-member task force was created in June and features eight subcommittees that examine different components of electronic services and formulate recommendations to make Florida a truly digital state.

"The goal of this task force is to promote the emergence of Florida as a high-tech capital for businesses and services related to the development of state-of-the-art telecommunications," Bush said.

Task force members come from the public and private sectors and include Roy Cales, Florida's director of information services, and Attorney General Robert Butterworth.
