LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — State lawmakers said Tuesday that they didn't see any reason to immediately change the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act despite a judge's insistence that part of the law was unconstitutional.

Sebastian County Circuit Judge James Cox ruled earlier this month that the sunshine law was unclear on whether officials could send emails or have one-on-one conversations outside a public meeting without violating the law.
