The budget passed the Texas Senate by a vote of 26-5 Wednesday evening, but that doesn't guarantee that Hinojosa's rider will survive all the way until the end. Texas Governor Rick Perry still wields the power of a line-item veto, after all.

Shouldn't Rick be a Dell guy or a fanboy of some Texas based company? At least Microsoft is not a Texas company.
