LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) â€” Arkansas legislative leaders hope to quickly tackle the three issues facing them in this week's special session, but the addition of a bill to restrict the lottery's games and objections to changes in teacher insurance could complicate those plans.
The House and Senate will convene Monday afternoon for a special legislative session called to deal with teacher insurance, prison overcrowding and the state's lottery. It'll be the third special session held since Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe took office in 2007.
