Martin O`Malley on Technology

Democrat

 


Require warrants for backdoor AND front-door searches

Q: Tech companies are responsible for the encryption technology to protect personal data, but the government wants a back door into that information. Is it possible to find common ground?

O'MALLEY: I believe whether it's a back door or a front door that the American principle of law should still hold that our federal government should have to get a warrant, whether they want to come through the back door or your front door. And I also agree with Benjamin Franklin, who said, no people should ever give up their privacy or their freedoms in a promise for security.

CLINTON: I was very pleased that leaders of President Obama's administration went out to Silicon Valley last week and began exactly this conversation about what we can do, consistent with privacy and security.

Q: The leaders from the intelligence community went to Silicon Valley, they were flatly turned down. They got nowhere.

CLINTON: That is not what I've heard. Let me leave it at that.

$25M more for road improvements

Over the last several years, monies for local road improvements have been slashed by up to 96 percent. Our administration is committed to restoring the money that was taken from the transportation trust fund, and to making sure that it never happens again.

Today I am pleased to announce a supplemental to our FY2016 budget that will increase Highway User Revenues by $25 million and give counties and municipalities the most money for road improvements that they have received since FY 2009.

Further, we are committed to increasing the local share of Highway User Revenues from 10% today to its original high point of 30% over the next 8 years.

$156M for One Maryland Broadband Network

We must create an economy that is "built to last." Maryland is leading the charge for our country's better future: by harnessing innovation; by modernizing our Port, opening the Inter-County Connector; expanding rural broadband; and building new schools & modern classrooms:

21st Century cyber-infrastructure & rural broadband network

Together, in so many ways, we are also building a 21st Century cyber-infrastructure. Our Health Information Exchange and first-responder interoperable communications network, will protect public health and public safety. The statewide rural broadband network we're building will effectively connect every county in Maryland to the information superhighway--thanks to President Obama and our congressional delegation. Through the Sustainable Communities Tax Credit, we're helping create 700 jobs. By moving forward with the Red Line and the Purple Line, we're striking a more sustainable balance between roads and transit. To connect the infrastructure of a stronger future, we are working together to grow smarter: protecting more open space, and advancing strategies like Transit Oriented Development.

Chief information officer to digitize federal government.

O`Malley adopted the manifesto, "A New Agenda for the New Decade":

Performance-Based Government
The strong anti-government sentiments of the early 1990s have subsided, but most Americans still think government is too bureaucratic, too centralized, and too inefficient.

In Washington and around the country, a second round of “reinventing government” initiatives should be launched to transform public agencies into performance-based organizations focused on bottom-line results. Many public services can be delivered on a competitive basis among public and private entities with accountability for results. Public-private partnerships should become the rule, not the exception, in delivering services. Civic and voluntary groups, including faith-based organizations, should play a larger role in addressing America’s social problems.

When the federal government provides grants to states and localities to perform public services, it should give the broadest possible administrative flexibility while demanding and rewarding specific results. Government information and services at every level should be thoroughly “digitized,” enabling citizens to conduct business with public agencies online.
