From staff, wire reportsAUSTIN DEWHURST: COLLEGE TUITION INCREASES ON HOLD FOR FALL 2004 — University systems will hold off on announcing tuition increases for the fall 2004 and spring 2005 semesters so that a legislative committee can first review whether the proposals are appropriate, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said Friday. Dewhurst said he asked university officials not to approve the proposals right away so the committee can decide if they can he justified, if there is adequate accountability and if enough financial aid is being offered. “Quite frankly, a number of us in the Legislature, including myself, are a little concerned about some of these (proposed) rate increases. They're higher than we’ve been led to believe •. they would be," Dewhurst said v after speaking at the Texas Civil Justice Leagues annual meeting. The legislature this year voted to allow universities to set their own tuition rates to offset budget cuts.HOUSTON ENRON BANKRUPTCY COSTS LIKELY TO HIT $1 BILLION — Failed energy giant Enron Corp. says its legal, accounting and other professional costs since declaring bankruptcy may top $1 billion by 2006. “I don’t think theres anything close,’’ Anthony Sabino, an energy and bankruptcy law expert at St. John’s University in New York, told The Associated Press on Friday. “ This is phenomenal. It is unprecedented.” Enron, whose Filing led a wave of corporate scandals, has already exceeded $514 million in legal, professional and account- 1-35 project slated to end as soon as New Braunfels motorists who are growing weary of the three-year Interstate 35 widening project could have a little some-s thing extra to be thankful for this month. Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety have published roadwork bulletins for the final phases of the Interstate 35 improvement project slated to be completed by the end of this year. Work south of New Braunfels northward to Texas 46 could be nearly complete with new lanes opened by the end of the month, a TxDOT official said Friday. ing fees, including billings from more than three dozen law firms and a handful of accounting and consulting firms since the company filed for reorganization on Dec. 2,2001, according to the Texas Attorney General’s office. The Houston-based company’s bankruptcy budget estimates show it will spend $146 million in the second half of2003 on professional fees, which include billings from lawyers, accountants and two court-appointed examiners. Even after it gains approval for its reorganization plan, expected in January, the budget through 2006 estimates an additional $330 million will be spent. N AT I O NCLEARWATER, Fla.

Jeb Bush may proceed. After a short Hearing, Circuit Judge VV. Douglas Baird said Michael Schiavo had successfully defended Terri Schiayo’s right not to be kept alive artificially. Any delays in removing the feeding tube and letting her die violate her consitutional right to privacy, the judge said. “The deprivation of this right is ipimediate, ongoing and presumptively unconstitutional," Baird said from the bench. Michael Schiavo had his wife’s feeding tube removed last month after years of legal battles with her parents, but the governor ordered the tube reinserted six days later under a hastily passed state law. Schiavo then sued Bush. Bush’s attorneys appealed, triggering an automatic stay, but the judge overrode the stay Friday and gave Bush’s attorneys until Monday to submit a brief defending the constitutionality of the new law. WORLDBRUSSELS, Belgium MICROSOFT HEARING ON EU ANTITRUST CHARGES ENDS - Dozens of lawyers, economists and technology experts ended three days of arguments Friday about whether Microsoft Corp. has been abusing the dominant position it has with Windows to unfairly muscle its way into new markets. The hearings with European regulators wrapped up Friday with two of Microsoft’s most vociferous detractors taking the stand to bolster charges of abuses in their two key markets: server software and multimedia players. It was server maker Sun Microsystems Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif., that filed the original complaint against Microsoft in Brussels five years ago. The other detractor, Seattle-based RealNetworks Inc., wants Microsoft’s media player divorced from the software giant’s operating systems. RealNetworks is Microsoft’s leading competitor in that realm.
