Lawmakers hope for quick session on 3 issues

Posted: Updated:
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 Governor Mike Beebe took office in 2007.

Renovations to the House chamber have moved representatives to the Old State House for the session, marking the first time substantive legislation has been taken up in the building since 1909. The Senate will continue meeting in the state Capitol.
