SB 6867 - Eliminating the state printer was introduced this morning by Senator Tom. According to the bill: "The legislature finds that technological changes have decreased the need for a central state printer. Information to citizens is increasingly being provided in electronic formats, which is both cost-effective and saves natural resources. Additionally, as printing technologies have changed, they have become within the reach of most agencies to conduct their own printing. The legislature also finds that printing is not a core state service and would be better handled within the private sector. To that end, the legislature is eliminating the state printer." The bill has been referred to the Senate Ways and Means Committee.
