Hello all,

If you have a few minutes to look over the current draft of our 
comment to the Egov IG, please send your thoughts in prep for 
tomorrow's meeting.  The IG is on a tight deadline and I would like 
to get our comment to them soon.

Thanks Shawn for your input, it was helpful  About this item, you 
suggest the possibility to delete a phrase from section 1.2.2.  The 
question is whether to delete "Equivalent avenues for participation 
by citizens without Internet access must be maintained into the 
indefinite future."

We are asking them to separate out the needs of people with 
disabilities for specific attention.  But we do not want in any way 
to deny that there are other barriers to online participation that do 
not have to do with disability.  This was my attempt to recognize the 
importance of other issues as well but perhaps there is another way 
to do that.

I would appreciate the group's input.

Their draft is here: http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-egov-improving-20090310/
and our comments are here:

Thank you!
