    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' House speaker says lawmakers will take final action next week on Governor Mike Beebe's proposal to provide Big River Steel with $125 million in state financing to help build a steel mill in northeast Arkansas.

    House Speaker Davy Carter said yesterday that he plans a vote on the bill Monday. The House voted 78-17 for the proposal earlier this week but still needs to OK a budget bill to fund the Senate-backed plan.
