SACRAMENTO (AP) — The state of California has redesigned its main website to offer one-stop shopping for business licenses, health care, lottery numbers and other services on a single web page.

The new CA.gov portal released Tuesday allows users to easily search popular amenities and receive results near them. It also personalizes background images based on location.

Government Operations spokeswoman Lynda Gledhill says six state employees and a private digital services company built the site over the last six months.

Gledhill says the state paid Sacramento-based Symsoft Solutions about $500,000 to code the website.

Services were previously available only on individual state agency sites. For instance, Gledhill says people would have needed to know to go to the Board of Equalization’s website for tax information.
