Thursday was one of the most eventful days of the Special Session. Progress was made on a student-centered funding formula and an accountability plan was signed into law. Meanwhile, consolidation was on the agenda in the House, where a plan for administrative consolidation (the cutoff: districts with 350 students or less) was passed. Governor Huckabee says the plan does not go far enough and warns some of the biggest decisions may be left to voters. As lawmakers plugged away, angry taxpayers gathered on the Capitol steps, protesting any move to fund reforms through more taxes. Just steps away at the Justice Building, Attorney General Mike Beebe filed the state`s response to the latest Lake View lawsuit.
