    framework that makes state and local government more accessible to Texas residents and ———— ? businesses. TexasOnline serves to provide alternative methods to existing paper-driven Local Government processes. The State of Texas is one of only a handful of state governments that also Representatives display local government services and information on its website. For this, and other reasons,

    Some of these awards are the Government Technology Leadership Award, George Mitchell CHARLES BACARISSE Payments System Excellence Award, and the Excellence Award for the Innovative Use of PAMELA QUINN Technology in State Agencies.

     ———— ? One of the most commonly accessed services during this time have been internet-based Business and vehicle registation renewal. The vehicle registration service is currently available in 32 Industry counties statewide and is managed by the Texas Department of Transportation. "On-line Representatives renewal is an attractive vehicle registration service alternative provided by TexasOnline and

    Athe participating county tax offices," said Jerry Dike, Director of the Texas Department of LEX GONZALEZ

    use their PC while at work to renew a vehicle registration in between taking bites of a

    sandwich. This has resulted in the collection of over $215 million in General Fund revenue

    via the internet by the State of Texas.
