LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – It’s official. The 92nd General Assembly adjourned ‘sine die’ today.
During the past 87 days of the session, the Arkansas legislature passed more than a thousand new laws.
The governor did not issue any vetoes.
House Speaker Matt Sheperd says Washington could learn from how the House and Senate conducted business.
“History will judge what we’ve done here. I think what we’ve seen is we ran a very efficient session. We kept some of the drama to a minimum,” says St. Rep. Matthew Shepherd (R-Speaker of the House).
While the House had no further business today, the Senate passed its last bill of the session.
It makes it easier for the state’s 500 cities and towns to change their form of government while keeping their recently-elected leaders.
