Legislators to Gather Today for Unfinished Special Session Business

MARCH 4, 2004 - Posted at 7:56 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The House and Senate are to return today from an extended recess to complete unfinished business from their lengthy special session.

It is unclear whether the Legislature will end the session or agree to only another extended recess.

Governor Huckabee says if the House and Senate don't adjourn, it will be tantamount to the Legislature admitting it failed to meet a state Supreme Court order to overhaul Arkansas' unconstitutional public education system.

The Legislature went into recess February 6 after the special session on education reform.  Lawmakers are scheduled to return today to consider overriding Huckabee's vetoes of bills and take final Senate action on two other bills left hanging last month.
