LITTLE ROCK, AR - Legislators return from a three-day break today.
They expect to get specifics from Governor Beebe on his tax-cut plans and his proposed balanced budget. Beebe so far has called for a three-cent cut in the state sales tax on groceries this year and $19 million more for education than what a legislative panel has already recommended.
The first week of the session last week was marked by ceremonies surrounding Beebe's inauguration and swearing in. Senate President Pro Tem Jack Critcher, a Democrat from Batesville, says it's time to get down to business.
