Morning legislative notes: ambivalence about guns on campus, no word on Beebe vetoes until next week

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 9:56 AM

*NEW POLL: The latest survey from Talk Business/Hendrix College considered Rep. Charlie Collins' guns on campus proposal and the Big River Steel super project. A slight plurality favor the guns on campus measure — 49.5 percent, 43 percent oppose and 7.5 didn't know. Folks polled, not surprisingly support the super project — 65.5 percent in favor, 17.5 percent no, 18 didn't know.

*NO WORD FROM BEEBE ON ABORTION BILLS UNTIL NEXT WEEK: Matt DeCample, spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe, said the governor won't reveal whether he'll veto the two unconstitutional abortion-ban bills that overwhelming passed in both chambers until Tuesday, when the governor returns from meetings in Washington. Look out, until then Mark Darr is acting gov! (UPDATE: He got the chance to preen; he signed the bill to make concealed carry permits secret, a bill that Beebe said would otherwise have to become law without signature.)

David Goins tweets that Darr has said he won't sign the abortion bills or anything else into law while Beebe is away.

*MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Sen. Bryan King's voter ID bill, subject to some tense debate in the Senate, will be in House State Agencies Committee on Wednesday.
