The legislature will clear out early today and not return until next Tuesday. The Senate's concerns were put to rest about the revenue stabilization act and the governor's designs on some pockets of money and all voted to approve introduction of the bill today.
Meanwhile, all eyes are on the sky. The same media that loudly predicted 12 to 15 inches of snow earlier in the week (and saw the totals in LR fall far short, if heavy enough) now say tonight's snow will be a minor event in Little Rock, though a problem in southern Arkansas. The Weather Service says a half-inch of snow and sleet possible this afternoon in Little Rock and additional snow, less than an inch, tonight.
