GLIN==> What's New & Notable, 3/1/01

SITE OF THE MONTH for March: STATE OF WISCONSIN
http://www.wisconsin.gov
The new State of Wisconsin e-government portal was designed to improve 
the overall efficiency of Wisconsin state government. Using 
wisconsin.gov, citizens can do almost anything relating to Wisconsin 
online -- from registering a car to searching for a job to planning 
their vacation. An example of this efficiency is wisconsin.gov's 
licensing and permitting database, which provides citizens and 
businesses with detailed information on hundreds of licenses, permits 
and registrations and links to download forms from most of the 15 
licensing and permitting agencies.
