Arkansas Lt. Governor Staff To Resign In June
Arkansas Senate President Michael Lamoureux says the four staff members in the lieutenant governor's office will resign in June after the position was left vacant following the resignation of former Lt. Gov. Mark Darr.
Lamoureux said Monday that the staff told him they will resign effective June 30 and that it was their idea to step aside. He says the employees are now searching for other jobs.
One Arkansas legislator has submitted proposals in the current fiscal session that are intended to reduce the amount of salary funds the office receives until the lieutenant governor's office is filled in the November general election.
Darr, a Republican, resigned Feb. 1 after the state Ethics Commission fined him $11,000 for ethics violations.
