Beebe: One decision remaining

Posted By on Fri, Feb 26, 2010 at 2:08 PM

Gov. Mike Beebe today signed all pending legislation from the fiscal session except SB 130, which taps the central services fund to pay for the cost of redistricting work next year.  Beebe had wanted to use legislative pork money to pay that cost, not the central fund. Beebe will decide Monday whether to veto the bill.

It's a dilemma. If Beebe vetoes the bill, there's no money to pay for redistricting and no ready prospect for fixing it. If central services is overspent, the cuts start immediately on general revenue agencies.
