Here's your daily report on where legislators can eat and drink free today courtesy of the gaping loophole they designed in the putative ethics measure, Amendment 94, approved by voters in November.

FREE LUNCH — Capitol Hill Building, 11:30 a.m., Arkansas Credit Union Association.

FREE DRINKS: Next Level Events, 4-6 p.m., Arkansas Environmental Association (industrial air and water polluters lobby) and Government Solutions (the lobby firm run by former legislators Randy Thurman and Courtney Sheppard).

MORE FREE DRINKS, FREE DINNER — Statehouse Convention Center, 7 p.m. Arkansas Municipal League Banquet. This is the city government lobby, financed by public tax dollars.
