No more fax

Among the regulatory items showing up in Monday’s edition of the Washington Weekly Briefing:

This bit of rule changing by the Washington Secretary of State’s office: “Documents received by fax are of poor quality, difficult to read, and must often be rejected due to illegibility, causing a delay in filing. Given that many more options exist today, such as e-mail, on-line submission, and overnight mail, the fax machine will be phased out of use.”

No argument here. We only rarely use ours any more (though it’s still connected). Just wondering how long it’ll be before nearly all governments do the same?
