Subject:   halon

I have been informed by University "design and construction" that the use
of halon gas for fire suppresion in computer rooms is "obsolete" due to
it being injurious and thus its use is being discredited.  Does anyone have
any further information regarding this?  Has anyone heard anything regarding
this?  I was even told that there is pending federal legislation regarding
this matter.  What's the scoop?
