Code violation

Posted By on Fri, Sep 18, 2009 at 2:42 PM

A report from Doug Smith on a governmental issue that has been mentioned by several blog readers:

As of Friday, the electronic version of the Arkansas Code – that is, the laws of the state of Arkansas – was not accessible on the state web site. Computer technicians were at work on the problem, and David Ferguson, director of the state Bureau of Legislative Research, said he was hopeful the Code would be restored to service “any day now.” The Bureau is responsible for putting the code on line. The outage probably didn’t bother lawyers much, because they usually subscribe to private services that provide the Code, Ferguson said. The version that the Bureau oversees is for the convenience of the public. Print versions of the Code are available to the public in the Arkansas Supreme Court library and county law libraries.
