Government Technology: Calif. to Hold Hearing [Feb. 8] on Open Source Software in Election Systems

Feb 08, 2006, 14:30 (5 Talkback[s])

"Senator Debra Bowen (D-Redondo Beach, Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Elections, Reapportionment & Constitutional Amendments Committee today announced a hearing by the committee to look at how private companies, as well as state and federal agencies, have begun using 'open source software' and where it can or should be used in California's electoral system.

"The meeting will be held [Feb. 8], at 9:00 a.m. [1700 GMT] in the State Capitol, Room 4202 (this is a change from Room 112). The meeting will be broadcast on the Web. To listen on the Web, go to http://www.asm.ca.gov/committee_hearings/ and click on 'Broadcast Room List,' then click on 'Committee Room 4202...'"

Editor's Note: Apparently Sen. Bowen is also running for California's Secretary of State office, so it will be interesting to see what conclusions get drawn from this hearing. -BKP
