Squeaky wheel department: Rep. Donna Hutchinson went to the press not long ago to press Gov. Mike Beebe to find money for foster care programs. His office had been resistant, she said, to using spare capital money for an ongoing commitment.

Yesterday, he said he would move money from the rainy day fund to hire foster care case workers. The hope is that state revenues will pick up sufficiently to sustain the new obligation.
