LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas lawmakers are taking up proposals to address teacher insurance premiums, prison overcrowding and new restrictions on the lottery as they return for the second day of a special legislative session.

The House and Senate were set to meet Tuesday afternoon, with votes set on identical measures to address the three issues. Lawmakers convened the session Monday, and legislative leaders hope to wrap it up by Wednesday morning.

A Senate committee was expected to take up a proposal to bar the lottery from starting monitor-style games such as keno until next spring. The measure is a compromise that eases an original plan to ban the expanded gambling outright. A House committee endorsed an identical proposal Monday, sending it to the full House.
