Welcome back, state employees!

"We don't believe it is state government's role to distinguish between which news source is legitimate and which is illegitimate," said Jonathan Miller, secretary of the cabinet. "For the most part, we are leaving an open Internet."

Although state workers can access the sites, they are not allowed to comment on blogs during working hours and should only access blogs for work-related reasons while on the clock, said Jill Midkiff, spokeswoman for the Finance and Administration Cabinet.

Workers are free to look at any blog they like, provided it doesn't contain pornographic material or other banned content, during breaks and lunch hours, she said.

"We'll be sending out a new acceptable use policy for workers to sign," Midkiff said.
It's great to have you back.
