Legislative committee to oversee state computer projects almost ready
A new state legislative committee to oversee the government's computer projects is finally moving forward.
There used to be such a panel. But it disbanded before a series of bungled computer projects unfolded over the last few years, costing taxpayers more than $200 million.
A state audit recommended nine months ago that the oversight panel be brought back.
Now, Assembly Speaker Rep. Mike Huebsch, R-West Salem, is almost ready to appoint his members.
