Arkansas Legislature to remain under GOP control

Arkansas Legislature to remain under GOP control

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Republicans have locked up control of the Arkansas Legislature for 2015.

The GOP on Tuesday won at least 62 seats in the 100-member House, while Democrats took at least 34. Results are pending on four races.

In the 35-member Senate, Republicans will hold a 24-11 margin after winning all four races decided Tuesday.

Republicans also won all seven constitutional offices.

In 2012, Republicans won control of the Legislature for the first time since Reconstruction, clinching 51 seats. Afterward, lawmakers passed one of the strictest abortion laws in the country and approved a voter ID law - but both laws were later found unconstitutional.

Legislators also passed a bipartisan plan to expand health coverage to more than 200,000 people by using Medicaid money to buy private health insurance for poorer Arkansans.
