WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman Mike Ross of Prescott will host his fifth call in a monthly series of telephone town halls on May 10, 2011.  Once a month for the rest of the year, Ross said he will be hosting the district-wide calls because they provide a unique way for his constituents to ask him questions, get updates on activities in Washington and hear his position on the issues all from the comfort of their own home.

The next call will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2011, at 7:10 p.m.

Bookout: Redistricting work likely on Monday

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas Senate President Paul Bookout says the Legislature will work Monday on redrawing the state's congressional boundaries.

The House and Senate recessed Friday. Bookout said legislative leaders plan to call lawmakers back to the Capitol on Monday afternoon solely to complete work on redistricting. A redistricting proposal that has passed the House but faces heavy Republican opposition has met resistance in the state Senate.

Bookout told reporters that the proclamation would call lawmakers back to the Capitol to work on redistricting.

The House-passed proposal would move the city of Fayetteville from the 3rd Congressional District to the 4th, the only Democratic congressional district in the state. Bookout said he didn't know how long it would take to complete redistricting work.
