Daily Update – Feb 16

The House has now completed the first week of the 2018 Fiscal Session. This afternoon, the House passed appropriation bills for several licensing boards and commissions. The bills passed today do not include any increases in funding.

Nine former Speakers of the Arkansas House gathered with members in the chamber as we presented HMR1001, a resolution in respectful memory of Tim Massanelli. Mr. Massanelli served as our House parliamentarian from 1975-2012. Every Speaker in attendance today shared their personal stories of their time with Mr. Massanelli.

You can watch that presentation and find a complete list of the bills passed today on our website Go to the Video Library to find today’s session.

The House will close for George Washington’s Birthday and Daisy Gatson Bates Day on Monday. We will reconvene on Tuesday at 1:30pm.
