Indiana Net Literacy Week, Resolution 85, was passed by the Indiana State Legislature in April of 2005. Senator Lugar and Senator Bayh, both advocates for increasing computer access and Internet literacy to all Hoosiers graciously accepted the responsibilities of Honorary Co-Chairpersons so they could include their vision and priorities to this program.
Depicted below is Indiana General Assembly House Concurrent Resolution 85, which established Indiana Net Literacy Week and empowered the Net Literacy Corporation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. This organization is comprised of student volunteers that make this week, which is the highlight and results of 51 weeks of planning and work, to help increase Indiana’s Internet literacy, touch the lives of thousands of Hoosiers by improving the quality of their life, and make Indiana a more competitive state and a great place to do business. This bill was introduced and sponsored by State Representative David Orentlicher, Senator J. Murray Clark, and Senator David Ford. We are grateful for their advocacy, their vision, and their support.
