Lottery Director Bishop Woosley takes a question about the possibility of adding “keno” style games during a Arkansas Lottery Commission meeting on April 16, 2014.

Gov. Mike Beebe on Friday said he has added proposed legislation to ban the lottery from offering electronic monitor games to the agenda for next week's special session.

State Sen. Jimmy Hickey, R-Texarkana, on Wednesday said he had given Beebe a list of 65 state representatives who wanted him to add the measure banning games such as keno and quick-draw to the agenda.

On Tuesday afternoon, Beebe had called for a special session to convene starting Monday to consider bills to provide more funding for the state's public school employees health insurance plan and to open about 600 more prison and jail beds.

The House will convene in the old state capitol building because its chambers are being restored, while the Senate will meet in the current state Capitol.

Arkansans might be scratching their heads over this reporter using "the old state capitol building" instead of "the Old State House". Perhaps she's new to Arkansas?
