    Sonny knows vi. I take back all the bad things I’ve said about him. He’s in the brotherhood of Unix Geeks now.

    the report contains the Governor’s statement:

    Gov. Perdue: …Transparency of information has not always been fondly accepted in political environments. I believe if you’re going to run a government, the more information that’s out there, the more opportunity there is for doing better. And I just think it’s the right thing to do. Many times Republicans get accused of being more close-minded [about transparency]. But I’ve felt there are advantages in running a very transparent government, and technology is one of the ways that you can be extremely transparent. The business information you can put out there is extremely powerful [for running the state more effectively].

    so, if the Governor really supports transparency in government – especially in electronic format – why did he VETO HB 91?

    the bill contained this language:

    (A) A list of all written contracts entered into by the agency during the immediately preceding fiscal year which call for the agency to expend at any time in the aggregate more than $50,000.00;
    (B) A list of any employment or consultant contracts, whether or not in writing, under which the employee or consultant is to be compensated more than $20,000.00, including direct and indirect or deferred benefits. When a person or firm, whose salary or fee is reportable under this subparagraph, shall have his or her compensation increased at any time, the amount of such increase and the total new rate shall be reported for the period in which the increase takes effect. The list of contracts shall state the anticipated amount of funds to be paid thereunder or the formula for determining such amount;
    (C) A list of the names of each person, firm, or corporation that has received from the agency during the immediately preceding fiscal year payments in excess of $20,000.00, including the amount paid to such person, firm, or corporation during such period; and
    (D) A list of consultant expenses and other professional services expenses; salaries and expenses of full-time and part-time employees and board members; and payments rendered by outside companies or agencies to the agency for any and all services.

    Doug Deal,

    Your point is invalid because you should have said “incorrectly” instead of “wrong.”
