The House and Senate convened briefly this morning to complete the 2013 General Assembly. By 10:14 a.m. the House had adjourned sine die. No business was conducted. The Senate likewise scuttled off after a skeleton crew mustered for a quiet ending.
That lack of action, significantly, had the effect of sustaining Gov. Mike Beebe's veto of three election-related bills by Sen. Bryan King aimed at taking Republican control of election oversight.
