“I think this is going to be a tidal wave from California eastward - it's going to get a lot of attention and may change a lot of minds,” said Stanford University computer science professor David Dill. “California is the biggest market for election equipment.

Cal. Votes To Come With Receipts
SAN JOSE, Cal., Nov. 22, 2003

The complete story is currently (3/28/04) available on the CBS News website at-- http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/11/22/politics/main585112.shtml [This link was found through a Google search by article title on the same date]

California's decision to require all electronic voting machines to provide paper receipts by 2006 promises to set the standard for such balloting nationwide. ...

Because California commands a sizable share of the market for voting machines, the move may prompt changes in equipment being adopted nationwide as local governments rush to modernize voting systems. ...

Voting equipment companies must retrofit systems already being used in at least four California counties with printers by July 2006. This makes California the first state to force equipment vendors to retrofit machines already purchased or installed.
