Mark Gordon on Technology



Improve broadband internet for rural tele-health & more

I support the ongoing effort to improve access to broadband internet coverage throughout the state. This has been an appropriate partnership between government and private industry. Not only does broadband give our students a tool to compete with the rest of the world, it is necessary for healthcare delivery - especially in rural areas where other specialized doctors are not available.

Lives are being saved now because of advances in tele-health. Neurologists in Casper are connected by internet-video to emergency rooms and can help treat stroke patients by getting them life-saving drugs in time for them to have the most benefit.

Advancements in technology like this improve the quality of life in Wyoming, solve complex challenges, create jobs and will allow entrepreneurs and established businesses to see even our smallest towns as fertile ground to grow a company.

Support Blockchain technology: uptick in trust companies

Treasurer Mark Gordon applauded Wyoming legislators for their leadership in implementing legislation to drive Blockchain technology and virtual currencies at the first meeting of the Blockchain Task Force in Laramie.ÿWyoming's State Treasurer noted the uptick in registration for trust companies in the state of Wyoming in recent months as a result of strong state leadership exerted in both the finance and technology sector. OnTheIssues explanation: "Blockchain technology" is a peer-to-peer electronic encryption method that requires no central authority nor government oversight. "Virtual currencies," such as Bitcoin, similarly require no government intervention, unlike other currencies which are created and backed by national governments. Therefore, both technologies are preferred for international Internet-oriented transactions.
