Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act - signed into law
on June 30 -- means that online contracts will now have the same
legal force as paper contracts.
This Experiment in Interactive Legislation
launched a new website to invite public comments on improving electronic
government. Senators Fred Thompson (R-TN) and Joseph Lieberman (D-CT)
want you, as "digital citizens," to be partners in the legislative
process. On this website, tell them how Congress can help create
an electronic government and read what others are saying.

Partners Build Web Sites That Work
Department of Housing and Urban Development delivers most of its
services via nonprofits, public housing agencies, state and local
governments, and other entities. To meet the goal of electronic
government, HUD's Web Team is teaching its partners how to create
websites that deliver the services HUD funds. The goal is to use
HUD's website to tell citizens about HUD-funded services and then
link them to the service, provided through the partners' websites.
