LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe is approaching his final year in office with an agenda that includes boosting funding for the state's prison system and protecting the Medicaid expansion he signed into law.

But his plans don't include a focus on his political future. After a career that includes 20 years in the state Senate, four years as attorney general and two terms as governor, Beebe insists he's nearing the end of his public life.

Beebe tells The Associated Press that 2014 will mark the end of his time in politics and elected office. The Democratic governor, who turned 67 last week, says he may teach a college class or serve on advisory boards, but he also plans to enjoy retirement.
