On Feb. 10, the state Legislature meets again in Little Rock for a fiscal session. 5NEWS Managing Editor Larry Henry talks with Rep. Greg Leding, D-Fayetteville, and Sen. Bart Hester, R-Cave Springs, about issues confronting lawmakers, including whether the private option health plan will be funded.


  • No, Senator Hester, my Senator….there will be a big hole that will only be funded with money taken from UAMS, our prison system, our colleges, DHS and for many ppl on Medicaid they will be kicked off…tell the painful truth please, because we sure will spread it before you run again…Ruth Pianalto

  • Thank-you Rep Leding…a sane voice of reason…!
