Governor Leavitt made a visit to the data center yesterday where KSL did a special on Utah.gov.  Here's the video and transcript of what they ran last night on the 10 o'clock news.  (I really was trying to stay out of the way of the camera)

Espanol.gov will launch on Thursday.  It is a Spanish version of FirstGov.  The problem is that, if you use the proper (Spanish) form of the word (www.español.gov) with the ñ, it doesn't work right.

Sweetwater County (WY) signs E-911 contract.

Some state legislators have proposed the idea of merging UDOT and UTA.

Two former directors of Utah's Corrections Dept. are working to rebuild Iraq's prison system.

E-government is a priority at this week's ASEAN conference.  Earlier, ASEAN prepared this primer on egov.

A recent study argues that states should do more to link economic development to mass transit.
