Arkansas Senate sets committees, draws for terms

story from Talk Business, a TCW content partner 

The Arkansas State Senate, under Republican control for the first time since the post-Civil War era, selected its committee assignments and allowed members to draw for two- or four-year terms.

Also, after the once-a-decade legislative redistricting process, Senators have to draw for two-year or four-year terms in order to stagger terms for members of the 35-seat chamber. On Thursday in their organizational meeting, State Senators drew numbers for term assignments, which will dictate which members may face election year challenges once again.

Below are the major committee assignments and the term draws.
