Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Texas Politics: Hasta la vista, Vista?: "State Senate budget writers are playing Arnold Schwarzenegger when it comes to Microsoft's Windows Vista.

As in, 'Hasta la vista, baby' to new agency purchases ofVista information technology under a budget provision added by Sen. Juan Hinojosa, D-McAllen.

If the provision stays in the budget, state agencies couldn't buy Vista technology unless they first get written approval from the Legislative Budget Board.

The provision is meant to block agency purchases of the technology, said Hinojosa, Senate Finance Committee vice chairman: 'Don't buy it, because it's not worth it.'"
