The 2013 legislature closes quietly

Posted By on Fri, May 17, 2013 at 10:11 AM

The House and Senate convened briefly this morning to complete the 2013 General Assembly. By 10:14 a.m. the House had adjourned sine die. No business was conducted. The Senate likewise scuttled off after a skeleton crew mustered for a quiet ending.

That lack of action, significantly, had the effect of sustaining Gov. Mike Beebe's veto of three election-related bills by Sen. Bryan King aimed at taking Republican control of election oversight.
