LITTLE ROCK — Democratic attorney general hopeful Nate Steel says sex offenders should no longer be eligible for parole and should be required to carry driver's licenses with a special imprint.

The state representative from Nashville unveiled a series of proposals Thursday that he said he'll push in the Legislature next year if elected attorney general. Steel said his proposals are aimed primarily at addressing Arkansas' prison overcrowding.

Steel also proposed increasing funding for drug courts, establishing a veterans' advocacy unit in the attorney general's office and using up-to-date technology to find parents who are not paying child support.

Steel is running against Republican nominee Leslie Rutledge. The two are running to succeed Democratic Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, who is barred by term limits from seeking re-election.
