Tenn. Top Among Technology Savvy States
Tennessee has been named as one of the top states in the nation for its efficient use of digital technology in state government. Governor Bill Haslam says the state was among six to receive an A-minus in the 2012 Digital States Survey. The survey is one of the longest running examinations of technology use in state government. Tennessee had scored a B-plus in 2010. This year only Michigan and Utah scored an A. The states are graded on savings or benefits from the use of technology, progress over the last two years, innovation and effective collaboration. Haslam says Tennessee will continue to develop online options to improve state service for taxpayers.
