Arkansas Lawmakers Delay Special Election for Lieutenant Governor
Lawmakers have passed a measure to keep the lieutenant governor’s office vacant until the November general election.
Senate Bill 139 allows Gov. Mike Beebe to postpone a special election for the vacancy left by former Lt. Gov. Mark Darr, who left office following $11,000 in fines for ethics violations.
The bill awaits Beebe’s signature.
