Rep. Steve Harrelson's Under the Dome blog
continues as a useful source of legislative notes. A recent scan: He says seven legislators are committed in 2009 to attempt to legislate ethics reform
(the best way, though a longshot among that gang of boodlers); he has a map of the Senate district Republican Shawn Womack
is leaving to run for circuit judge (abandon hope all gay people who enter that judge's court, presuming his poor legal ethics record doesn't get him beat); and the coming announcement of Democrat Darrin Williams
of Little Rock to succeed state Rep. Linda Chesterfield
, who's term limited.
