Lt. Gov. Mark Darr, who announced on Jan. 10 that he's resigning effective Saturday, is expected to formally tender his resignation soon.

Senate President Pro Tempore Michael Lamoureux, R-Russellville, says he expects Darr's four staff members to continue to work in the office.
"They are there to serve to the people of Arkansas. They aren't there to serve Mark Darr," Lamoureux says. "They get requests and constituent calls."
