It's exciting to see Drupal bringing a new level of transparency and openness to government -- allowing for more understanding and involvement by citizens. While most of this government information and data was theoretically open in the past, the truth was that you had to find the right people to open the right file cabinets in the right storage rooms to get what you needed. Now, thanks to the web, the barrier of involvement has gotten a lot lower. Whether it's finding out the wait time at the nearest Registry of Motor Vehicles, downloading the application for a dog license, or keeping track of how your state representative is voting on the issues, the Internet is making it easier. Drupal can provide a quick flexible way to build these feature rich sites.
And for all those other government agencies looking to get up to speed quickly with Drupal, we'll be happy to help!
