Arkansas State Offices In LR Area On 2 Hour Delay Tuesday

Feb 16, 2015

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson is ordering state offices in the Little Rock metropolitan area to open two hours later for non-essential personnel Tuesday due to winter weather that hit the state.

The governor's office on Monday said the state's inclement weather would remain in effect Tuesday morning after snow, sleet and freezing rain hit most of the state.

Hutchinson's office says state employees outside central Arkansas should check with their supervisor for delays.

Monday was a state holiday, and Hutchinson ordered Little Rock area offices closed that day for employees who had been required to report to work for the legislative session.

The House and Senate canceled Monday's proceedings because of the weather.
