State party Chairman Doyle Webb said the suit was dropped because a law passed by the legislature addressed their concerns. From a Republican Party press release:

“We could not have received a better result if we proceeded to court,” Webb said. “We commend the Legislature for recognizing the abuse of state vehicles by elected officials and passing Act 1021. We feel this is a bi-partisan resolution that benefits the people of Arkansas.”
