LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Legislature is to convene today to formally close the special session on education.
Backers of a bill that was vetoed by Governor Huckabee say they will try to override the veto during today's meeting.
Huckabee said he supported the idea behind a program to train science teachers but feared that funding the half-million dollar program would take money away from scholarships.
The Legislature convenes at 1 p.m.
Members are to decide whether to formally adjourn the special session that was called earlier this month to address the state's school funding problems.
