To study the feasibility of expanding the computer services available to members of the General Assembly and the organizational framework within which legislative computer services are currently provided. The following study items have been identified for the 1999 interim:
1. A discussion of the need for legislative oversight, under House Bill 99-1348, of the following:
2. Monitoring of the new Innovation and Technology Office (HB 99-1372).
3. Training of members in the use of their laptop computers and LIS plans for replacing and disposing of laptops on a two or three year cycle.
4. The feasibility of wireless computer systems for the LSB building.
5. Status of the CLICS project and monitoring of future directions.
6. A project to provide electronic access to bill histories (fiscal notes, etc.) for 1997 and 1998 on the network, to include a key word search engine or a way of searching bills by subject. Also, the committee needs to make a policy decision as to how many years of bill history should be stored for electronic retrieval (5 years? 8 years?).
7. The feasibility of providing real time audio to the internet and intranet.
In addition, the committee continues to pursue long-range goals related to information access for members of the General Assembly both at the State Capitol and from remote locations. Historically, the committee has also explored methods of providing greater public access to legislative information through the use of computer technology.
