Senate Committee Approves Staff Restructuring after Resignation

FEBRUARY 20, 2007 - Posted at 7:34 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - An Arkansas Senate committee has endorsed a staff restructuring and pay changes for employees of the chamber.  The action yesterday follows the resignation of the Senate's top staffer last month, Chief of Staff Bill Goodman.

The post Goodman occupied would no longer exist under the new system approved by the Senate's efficiency committee.  That system calls for Secretary of State Ann Cornwell also to become coordinator of legislative services, in charge of paid staffers.  She will take over the managing day-to-day operations of the Senate, the role formerly filled by Goodman.

Cornwell would earn $95,759 per year under the new management and salary plan.  Goodman was paid more than $100,000 per year as chief of staff.
