Letter From Cuccinelli To Houck

Pretty straightforward and self-explanatory I think (emphasis added).

Monday, February 11, 2008

The Honorable R. Edward Houck
Virginia Senate
General Assembly Building, Room 326

Dear Senator Houck:

Thank you for sharing your perspective of Data Point when you spoke against my SB585 in the General Laws and Technology Committee on January 30. SB585 directed the Auditor of Public Accounts, the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission and the Director of Virginia Enterprise Applications to work together to coordinate efforts to use Data Point to provide a more citizen friendly, more searchable, less state-lingo oriented presentation.

Given your hearty endorsement of the efficacy of Data Point being sufficient for budget, expenditure and performance transparency for ordinary citizens, I would like ten minutes of your time for a meeting with me and a group of reporters, perhaps some time after crossover. Given a typical question or two from a reporter about our state budget or expenditures or performance, we would like to have you show how both the process of asking a question in Data Point and the resulting response can be commended to our citizens as effective and easy to use.

Please let me know if you are willing to participate in such a demonstration and when you would be available and I will help issue the invitations.

Kenneth T. Cuccinelli, II
