LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Governor Huckabee is poised to make groundbreaking proposals Tuesday to restructure state schools during his in State-of-the-State address to a joint session of the House and Senate at the state Capitol.

The proposals are in response to a court order declaring Arkansas' public education funding unfair and inadequate. Huckabee is scheduled to outline his vision in the speech.

Huckabee spokesman Rex Nelson said Arkansans should expect the governor to present a package to the Legislature that's going to allow each of the 135 members make history in this session.

The governor and his staff were tight-lipped about the details of Huckabee's plan Monday.

Though education is the centerpiece of the regular session the governor also is expected to discuss skyrocketing costs for government health programs and ways to ease record overcrowding in state prisons in a weak economy.
