The We the People portion of the site has posted a
petition calling for government to reduce spending by employing open

To my mind, government using open source is just good business sense. As
you may know, the site is hosted on Drupal. Still, there
is no broad mandate that encourages agencies to consider open source
solutions. If you agree there should be such a mandate, I would suggest
you add your name to the petition.
