Down in Texas, Senate loves the phone guys

Despite being a non-starter in the house of representatives, Texas State Senate has okayed a bill that eliminates local franchise requirements for telcos to enter video markets – instead allowing for a single statewide franchise. Good news for Verizon and SBC, and not so good for cable guys. Funny how once in Senate politicians turn the back on little town legislatures (who thrive on franchise fees.)
