Since today has always been expected to be a fairly light early-session day, with legislators heading home for a long weekend until next Tuesday, no cocktail parties and deluxe banquets are scheduled by the lobby today for Arkansas lawmakers. Not to worry, a legislator can still scrounge a free meal, Amendment 94 or no Amendment 94.

They have a choice:


FREE LUNCH:11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.,  Association of Arkansas Counties Building, host: Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

FREE LUNCH: Room 207 Capitol, 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m., host: Minority Health Commission.


Note that both interest groups here are public agencies, supported by tax dollars.
