Legislators plan to continue to look at problems in state prison system.

LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - A legislative committee led by Senator Bobby Glover will travel Tuesday to the state's Tucker unit.

Glover said legislators likely will have more questions about how the 15,000 state inmates are guarded.

Glover says the prison system withheld information about problems ranging from high-profile escapes to an inmate's near death.
