    Legal reform aimed at creating of favorable legal environment is important part of e-government development. E-government legal solutions need to be legally binding and sound in order to succeed. Legal framework initiatives for e-Governance so far have followed two concurrent approaches. First one infers development of separate regulations covering individual questions pertaining to e-Government, under umbrella of special programs-plans. Second one, is a holistic framework, which could identify and address legal principles of e-Government in a single regulation. This approach may especially be applicable to cross-border issues and challenges common within any e-government environment. The article provides comparative review of these views on e-Governance regulation and their suggested benefits and flaws.
