A digital winner.

Michigan ranks first in the nation in using information technology for public services, according to a study by the Center for Digital Government. Virginia, Ohio, Utah, Arizona, Arkansas, South Dakota, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Tennessee rounded out the top 10. The study included more than 70 measurements and examined best practices, policies and progress made by state governments in their use of digital technologies to better serve their citizens and streamline operations. "Whether it's making hunting and fishing licenses available online, or making it easier for businesses to get the permits they need, or providing an online talent bank for employers and job seekers to find each other," says Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm, "I'm proud of the many things we have done through technology to improve service to our citizens."
