Arkansas Offices to Be Open Tomorrow, Federal Offices Closed

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Federal offices in Arkansas will be closed Friday as part of the national day of mourning for former President Ronald Reagan.  Governor Mike Huckabee has decided to keep state offices open, but the governor has given workers some options for honoring Reagan.

Huckabee says workers can find a way to pay tribute to the former president while they are on the job, or they can take leave time.

The governor himself plans to attend the funeral Friday in Washington, along with Democratic Senator Mark Pryor and Republican Representative John Boozman.
