With a budget deficit topping $34 billion, California is shifting responsibility for IT support for mental health, children, and family programs to its counties, helping the state save $8 billion. New Jersey, facing a $5 billion budget gap, will invest in top-priority IT projects involving homeland security and public health. Virginia, with a $1.5 billion budget shortfall, is simplifying IT oversight into a single state agency.
