Save Money - Require government to use Open Source Software whenever possible

The government is a huge customer for closed source proprietary software which incurs an unnecessary expense to taxpayers in software licensing fees. The general philosophy of open source software is that "more heads are better than one" when it comes to developing a logical solution to problem-solving. This philosophy compliments the role of our government which goes something like "for the people by the people"
