LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board has voted to lift the interim tag from its department director's title.

  Broadway told The Associated Press on Monday that the only change will be to his title and that work will continue as before on various projects that are being developed.

 The board approved an annual salary of $166,464 for Broadway.

 Twenty applicants sought the position and the board picked two finalists. Broadway won the position when the other finalist withdrew.
