Oh, yes it was a BIG secret. It wasn't in the news in South Texas until it was a done deal. I still don't recall the legistlature voting on it. It was just announced by Perry that Cintra had the contract.

Just curious..... Does the legislature have to vote on every contract the State of Texas enters or does the state have the right to enter contracts without legislative concurrence on each one if the contracts don't violate the state or federal laws?

I agree with you that I don't think the Legislature voted on this specific contract but again I'm not sure they were required to. I bet if they were required to vote on it there are enough people/groups out there to bring litigation on the issue/failure.
