If so, it said Tuesday, the economy would register a growth pace slightly above 1 percent for the year as a whole. The economy contracted a sharp 3.8 percent last year in a decline spurred by falling world oil prices.

State news Board proposes ban on sex education AUSTIN (AP) — The State Board of Insurance has proposed rules to ban insurance companies from asking policy applicants if they are homosexuals. In a 3-0 vote, the board Tuesday decided to seek public comment on the rules that would go into effect Oct. 1 if finally approved. The proposal includes a specific list of things an insurance company cannot do to try to find out about an applicant's sexual preference. In addition to barring questions about sexual preference, the proposed rules say. "Neither the marital status, the living arrangements, the occupation, the gender, the medical history, the beneficiary designation nor the ZIP code or other territorial classification of an applicant may be used to establish, or aid in establishing, the applicant's sexual orientation." The board last week voted to let insurance companies continue testing policy applicants for AIDS. But the rules proposed Tuesday say that an applicant's sexual preference is of no concern to the companies. Perot bankrolls search for boy's body DALLAS (AP/ — Billionaire H.
