Presidential candidate Kamala Harris is making a tech move.
On Thursday, Sen. Harris introduced a bill called the Digital Service Act (PDF) to help state and local governments hire tech talent to upgrade their computer systems.
"Americans deserve a government that works for them and that just plain works," Harris, a Democrat from California, said in a release.
"We must do more to empower our state and local governments to tap into the power of technology to provide seamless, cost-effective services for the 21st century.
The Digital Service Act will help harness top talent for the government, save taxpayer dollars and put the power of technology to work on behalf of the American people."
If passed, the legislation would provide $50 million a year for government digital services, an additional $15 million would go toward seed grants for state and local governments to upgrade their systems in two years.
