Registration has begun for Utah's new online construction registry.

Governor Huntsman had a chance to understand a little more about how UWIN has aided statewide communications interoperability in his recent visit to southern Utah.

Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is sponsoring a bill to restrict the information that the National Weather Service can post online.  This legislation threatens egovernment in general.  For the NWS, it would limit information to only that which private weather providers do not provide.  There are many good private sector weather information providers, including the weather channel and intellicast.

Arkansas has a new online service that allows friends and relatives to go online to deposit funds into inmate accounts.

The LA Times reports that the Dept. of Agriculture is about to award a new contract that consolidates federal campground reservations through a private provider.  Utah has been using ReserveAmerica for several years and it looks like they are a prime contender for the federal contract.  The reservation system will be accessible through recreation.gov which has also been doing a good job of coordinating with the states.  We provide our state parks and other information to the portal through an XML interface.

The Digital Divide Network reports on the USDA's new eHealth site.  MyPyramid.gov is supposed to help individuals structure a personalized health program.  The Network made 10 recommendations for improving egovernment service in their 2004 report: E-Government for All, Ensuring Equitable Access to Online Government Services.
