Subject: [svlug] California AB 1668

For those of you unaware, California AB 1668 would mandate open
document formats for the California state government. See the text
here -

http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/07-08/bill/asm/ab_1651-1700/ab_1668_bill_20070223_introduced.html

I'm putting together a web site at http://www.bytesfree.org/

Find your local assemblymember and write them. If they happen to be on
the committee for which a hearing is scheduled on April 17, even
better. The committee in question is the Committee on Jobs, Economic
Development and the Economy. The breakdown is 4 democrats to 2
republicans.

Apparently, Microsoft is already lobbying hard to defeat it and
prevent it from getting out of committee.

Please forward this to other interested groups.

Sincerely,
Cyrus Mack
