A Message from Governor Owens.

The ongoing transition to a global information economy makes our society increasingly dependent on computer technology. Any disruption by the so-called “Y2K” problem poses risks for Colorado.

Providing a state-wide forum for addressing the “Y2K” problem and its solutions will increase the effectiveness - and reduce the cost - of “Y2K” compliance and contingency planning for public and private institutions alike.

My Task Force on Year 2000 Readiness will develop a coordinated approach between the public and private sectors. Your assistance and input are vital in this effort and I encourage your full participation.
