2006 Brown Report on eGovernment in the States

Brown University's study of egovernment in the states came out this week. Congratulations to Texas who was rated first this year. Utah was ranked fifth and was the only state in the top five to be there for the last 3 years. I think Brown likes to recognize different people and has adjusted the criteria from year to year.
Utah has a new service online today. Golfers can reserve tee times at golf courses located at state parks, all online.

Several new cases of West Nile virus were reported in the state. In addition to all the information available on West Nile locally, you can also report dead birds online. CDC's site gives you a good overview of WNV across the nation. We will get WNV reporting integrated into the alerts portal soon.

The northwest Arkansas Daily Post reports that only five states, Arkansas, Mississippi, Wyoming, West Virginia and Utah have a grocery tax. Arkansas wants to get rid of theirs.

Plenty of people have ideas on how to spend the newly reported $350 million surplus for the State of Utah.
