WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) on Thursday introduced the Digital Service Act, legislation to empower state and local governments to invest in “digital services,” small teams of technologists, designers, and civil servants who will update and rebuild government systems.
The legislation will also bolster the United States Digital Service (USDS), which since 2014 has completed over 100 projects improving the federal government’s ability to serve the American people while saving taxpayers billions.
“Americans deserve a government that works for them and that just plain works,” said Harris. “We must do more to empower our state and local governments to tap into the power of technology to provide seamless, cost-effective services for the 21st century. The Digital Service Act will help harness top talent for the government, save taxpayer dollars, and put the power of technology to work on behalf of the American people.” Read More
