Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter 

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, who last September announced a statewide IT consolidation effort, today followed up in his state of the state address, naming two Representatives and two Senators who will sponsor a consolidation bill. "Representatives Andy Kerr and Bernie Buescher and Senators Bill Cadman and John Morse will co-sponsor legislation to consolidate the state's splintered Information Technology systems under one roof in the Governor's Office of Information Technology," said Ritter in his published remarks.

Ritter also said he expects to report additional findings from his government-efficiency review later this spring. The review already has identified $145 million in five-year savings and benefits.
