NASHVILLE (AP) - State Rep. Charles Curtiss says he will not seek re-election.

The 66-year-old Sparta Democrat didn't give a specific reason for his decision but said Wednesday he wanted to give candidates considering running for his District 43 seat plenty of time to plan.

Curtiss was elected in 1994 and will have served 20 years when his current term ends.

House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh says Curtiss will be missed.

The Ripley Democrat, who was elected at the same time as Curtiss, called him a leader on worker's compensation, insurance and utility matters, who is "always looking out for the regular working people."
