The only way a special session could occur is if Beebe called one, and he repeated his objection to doing that.

"Let's don't waste taxpayer dollars. Let's make a decision," he said.

Senate President Michael Lamoureux, R-Russellville, said he understands Westerman's desire for more time, but said he would prefer if lawmakers take up the health care expansion during the regular session.

"I don't want to count on something that is completely within somebody else's control," Lamoureux said.
