JANUARY 30, 2007 - Posted at 7:52 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The state Senate has a top staff vacancy to fill in the middle of a legislative session. Bill Goodman, the Senate's chief of staff and a legislative employee since 1972, resigned his position yesterday after a Senate Efficiency Committee meeting.

The 68-year-old Goodman declined to discuss the reason for his resignation. He said he just felt it was time to leave the job. As chief of staff, Goodman oversaw the paid employees of the state Senate.

Senate President Pro-Tem Jack Critcher, who attended the meeting, declined to discuss the reasons for Goodman's departure. He said business conducted or transacted in executive session needs to stay confidential.
