STATES TURN TO EBAY TO SELL SURPLUS

Oregon sold an estimated $7.3 million worth of cars confiscated from
drug dealers, office supplies, heavy equipment and other merchandise on
EBay (EBAY) last year. Other states have taken notice and are either
asking Oregon to also move some of their surplus and unneeded
merchandise, or are setting up their own online auctions, the Associated
Press reported. Officials from Michigan, Colorado and Texas have
visited Oregon to learn more about the process, too.

Lynchburg, VA and another State have Oregonsurplus.com doing their thing.
