HEBER SPRINGS, AR - Legislators plan to meet in Heber Springs for three days this week.  They intend to hire a new director of the Bureau of Legislative Research, and members of the Joint Committee on Educational Facilities will observe a review of Heber Springs High School buildings.  Over the summer, teams of architects, builders and engineers have been assessing all Arkansas school buildings to determine if they are adequate for educational needs.

The meeting begins Wednesday.
