Microsoft Case Holdouts Are in Cross Hairs

BY EDMUND SANDERS and JOSEPH MENN

Attorneys general in the nine states that have refused to settle the landmark Microsoft Corp. antitrust case are finding themselves in the political hot seat, caught in the middle of a lobbying battle between the software company and its opponents. In California, a Microsoft ally and key state legislator who helps oversee the state's budget wrote Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer last week, questioning the wisdom of continuing to fund the lawsuit amid the state's budget shortfall.

Citizens Applaud Decision to Let Oregom Salmon Ruling Stand

In a step in the right direction, the National Marine and Fisheries Service (NMFS) announced today that it would review its hatchery fish policy and refrain from appealing a federal judge’s recent Oregon coastal coho salmon ruling. U.S. District Judge Michael R. Hogan ruled this summer in Alsea Valley Alliance vs. Evans that NMFS erred by not including hatchery-bred salmon in determining Endangered Species Act (ESA) listings. Consequently, NMFS announced today that it would review its policy on 20 other ESA listings that include hatchery-bred salmon.

State approves 2 of 3 textbooks

BY Tim Eaton

The State Board of Education approved two of three textbooks Friday in a vote that fell along party lines, and one of the five dissenting votes came from a Corpus Christi commissioner. The board first decided Thursday to reject two of three new environmental science books for high school students but reconsidered Friday and snubbed only one when publishers said they would work to ease community concerns.

Science textbook approved

BY JOHN MORITZ

AUSTIN - The state board of education reversed course Friday, giving its seal of approval to an environmental science textbook it had rejected by a party-line vote 24 hours earlier after a contentious debate that encompassed religion and censorship. Another science book spurned by the 15-member board Thursday was not reconsidered. Board member Cynthia Thornton, R-Round Top, urged the panel to approve Environmental Science: How the World Works and Your Place in It after its publisher, J.M. LeBel of Dallas, agreed to revisions.

State board rejects science texts

BY TERRENCE STUTZ

AUSTIN - State Board of Education members, in what critics called a new round of textbook censorship in Texas, voted Thursday to reject two controversial high school science books because of what they said were factual errors. The vote was along partisan lines as all 10 Republicans voted to reject the environmental science textbooks, while all five Democrats on the board favored approval. "This is nothing but censorship," said board member Mary Helen Berlanga of Corpus Christi. "The board has no authority to do this."
