California Status Report

Wednesday, 2007-March-28 at 11:29

Last month, I reported that California has a bill to move to open standard XML-based file formats for its office applications.  The bill has been referred to a committee as of two days ago.

LAST HIST. ACT. DATE: 03/26/2007
LAST HIST. ACTION : Referred to Com. on J., E.D. & E.

We will have to continue to watch its progress as well as keeping an eagle-eye watch on the state CIO's office after passage.  The bill: "The bill also would
require the Department of Technology Services to evaluate, as
specified, all open, XML-based file formats and to develop
guidelines, as specified, for state agencies in using open, XML-based
file formats.
"

The bill's history is here: LINK.
