Sunk: David Meek's bill to remove Arkansans from the individual mandate set forth in the Affordable Care Act, and virtually shut down health care reform in Arkansas was defeated 12-7. Our blog item from this morning is here.

So sorry: Sen. Bruce Holland, R-Greenwood, apologized for trying to outrun a state trooper sheriff's deputy through two counties and at speeds of around 110 miles per hour.

Registration: A bill that would allow the state to send email notifications to drivers when their vehicle registration is due, as opposed to snail mail, was approved in committee this morning. Kathy Webb says the bill could save the state around $100,000.
