As e-commerce facilitated the movement of businesses from bricks and mortar interfaces, Internet and communication technology are moving e-govemment to a point where all citizens will be able to access government services in their homes. This paper reports the status of e-government in Georgia (USA), with particular attention to stages of e-government development in the state. Currently, only 51 percent of counties in Georgia have official e-government web sites. Generally, rural counties have not developed their official e-government web sites as much as have counties in metropolitan areas.
