Bad Bill Bob's Commentary on HB197

This bill adds requirements to vendors that intend to do projects for the state                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
government in excess of $100K that will likely require a completely new department

This bill requires keystroke and mouse clicks to be counted, AND                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
screenshots to be taken every 3 minutes. There are plenty of ways to manage                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
contracts and assure accountibility rather than all the cumbersome requirements of
