State of technology update

Florida: Gov. Jeb Bush

In his March 6 speech, Bush said that the use of technology is transforming state government, but he did not elaborate further. He said more than $6 million is earmarked in his proposed budget for computerized tutoring in reading, writing and math "so that studying can take place anytime, anywhere." Regarding the state's problems in the November 2000 presidential election, he said that the state needs to dedicate resources to modernize the voting systems before the next election cycle.
