LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson is backing off plans to call the Legislature back to the Capitol next week to take up income tax cuts. The Republican governor on Tuesday delayed the special session he had expected to call for the income tax cut proposal.

Hutchinson said he needs more time to discuss the plan with legislators and didn’t say when he hoped to call the session. Hutchinson said he hoped to call the session before Thanksgiving. Hutchinson said his tax cut proposal would cost the state $321 million a year once fully implemented.
