California Gov. Gray Davis has proposed allocating an additional $10 million
to the state's electronic government programs. In addition, Gray is calling
for the creation of an e-government business advisory council to provide
private-sector advice on state e-government efforts.
The May revisions to the state budget include $3.61 million to redesign
the state's World Wide Web page, and for an enhanced e-mail system.
The proposal would provide:
* $2.45 million for government-to-business systems, providing $600,000
for online professional licensing; $450,000 for online competitive bid processing;
$400,000 for e-procurement expansion to benefit small business and access
multiple departments involved in procurement; $750,000 for environmental
regulation of business; and $250,000 for interactive employer/employee
job posting and recruitment.
* $1.5 million for the Department of General Services to upgrade equipment
and wiring and to provide disaster recovery capabilities.
* $1.2 million for government-to- citizen systems, including $200,000
for online domestic employer tax filing; $500,000 to expand Department of
Motor Vehicle online services to include change of address, duplicate licenses,
appointments and vanity plates; and $500,000 for state permits.
