State of technology update

Delaware: Gov. Ruth Ann Minner

Minner, entering her first term as governor, said Jan. 25 that her state administration is not only the first of the new millennium, but it also will "exist in its entirety during the Internet era." She said the time was right to harness the Internet and technology to provide better service to citizens and save resources. The state aims to completely redesign its Web site by the spring so that services and information are organized in a way that's easier to use.

Minner also promised that the state's Division of Motor Vehicles would use the latest technologies to help customers. Also, she said statewide technical and policy standards will be established for state agencies as they move services and information onto the Web.
