AB 2097 -- Proposed Amendment

People are concerned what happens if vendors refuse to comply.

Currently, Sec 2, (4)(f) says,

     A public review process shall be in place by
     June 30, 2007. In the event that a vendor of a
     system certified before June 30, 2007, refuses to
     comply with the disclosure requirements, his or
     her system shall be decertified. The Secretary
     of State shall ensure that a suitable replacement
     be available.

Here's what I'm thinking ....

A public review process shall be in place by June 30, 2007. If, by February
1, 2007, the Secretary of State is for any reason dissatisfied with vendor
compliance progress with provisions of this measure, the Secretary of State
may contract with any or several campuses of the University of California to
create voting system software to run on existing voting system hardware or
replacement COTS hardware. In this case, the Secretary of State will forego
the federal certification process normally required.
