Arkansas Lawmakers Seek to Abolish Lt. Governor's Office

"Two Arkansas senators said Thursday that they plan to lead a "bipartisan effort" to get rid of the office of lieutenant governor when the legislature convenes in January," the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports.

The lawmakers called the lieutenant governor's office a "vestige of the early 19th century," and estimated that abolishing the office "would save Arkansas taxpayers about $450,000 a year."
