Wireless Access at the Capitol


One of the bills that didn't get much air time last session was Senate Bill 100 which gives the Capitol Preservation Board (the group that manages the Capitol Complex) the authority to offer free Wi-Fi to the public at the State Capitol. The bill passed (no Senators and three Representatives dissented) and has been signed by Gov. Huntsman. Of course, the Legislature was doing this unwittingly several years ago. Now, its official!

Seriously, I think this is a good thing. I'm not sure the Legislature realizes that this gives everyone sitting in a hearing the ability to google anything they say and look up information on-the-fly. This evens the playing field a little.
