President's Remarks
Welcome to the government of the 21st century. This new and enhanced web site allows you to find services ... do business ... and connect with your government with the click of a computer mouse.

FirstGov is the "Front Door" to my Administration's e-Government Initiative. Simply put, our goal is to make your government more accessible to all Americans.

FirstGov is a one-stop, easy-to-use web portal to all government online services. This means that you can click onto this web site and quickly find and conduct business without needing to know which department or agency provides it. FirstGov helps you cut through governmental red tape to find online services that matter to you.

In the past, FirstGov was a site that provided information about the government. Now it is a site that provides solutions for people.

So visit the FirstGov web site ... come back again ... and tell your friends. Thanks to this web site, your government is now just a click away.

President George W. Bush
