Car wreck of a session open line: Tech park item update

Car wreck of a session.
  • The 2013 General Assembly (click to enlarge).

You've been reading about Arkansas legislators all day. You need a break. How about a national Republican, and his Freudian slip? We leave you tonight with a quote from Paul Ryan:

"We're not going to give up on destroying the health care system."

No, we don't think they are.

OK, so you're weary of tech park news too. But:

* TECH PARK ALTERNATIVE NO. 4: An amalgamation of proposals by realtors Jim Hathaway and Hank Kelley on a fourth possible site for the Little Rock Technology Park has been posted on the tech park website. In theory, the authority board did not know of this new proposal until consultant Charles Dilks spoke about it at last night's meeting. In reality, board member Bob Johnson was looking at a copy of the Flake-Kelley proposal while it was being presented. Maybe it was just slipped to him right before Kelley stood to talk and I missed it. But it seems unlikely the board — or the entire board — was unaware what consultant Charles Dilks was going to present.

Update: I am informed by someone at the meeting Gary Smith with Flake & Kelley handed out copies of the presentation to the board at the same time Kelley was walking up to the podium.

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
