— A legislative panel has advanced a proposal creating a task force that will study replacing a state veterans’ home that closed last year.

The Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee on Thursday endorsed the proposal by Republican Sen. Jane English of North Little Rock to create an Arkansas veterans’ home task force.

English’s proposal would create a 22-member task force that would begin meeting in May to work on recommendations for replacing a state veterans’ home in Little Rock that closed last year.

The panel would look at potential locations for a new facility, the cost and potential funding sources.

The proposal calls for the task force to issue its recommendations by Oct. 31.

English’s proposal heads to the Senate, which is expected to vote on it Tuesday.
