Gov. Mike Beebe has decided that he will not veto Senate Bill 131,  which makes secret all personal information of concealed-carry permit  holders in Arkansas.           

In 2009, a legislative compromise was reached that bolstered the  privacy of permit holders while still preserving the public's right to  access information.  Without evidence of any problems resulting from  this compromise over the past four years, Governor Beebe said he saw no need to  further restrict information and opposed the bill.           

However, with overwhelming support in both houses and no constitutional  concerns about the bill, Beebe has decided to let the bill go into law  without his signature, and that will happen next Monday.
