Arkansas Week April 12, 2019
(Arkansas's Budget) It took 90 days to decide how to spend almost 6 billion dollars, not counting a few billion more in federal funds. (Personal, Corporate) They voted to spend it pretty much as the governor requested, while cutting most taxes along the way. ('Transformation' Time) Not only that, the legislative gave the executive the overhaul of his branch that he contends will save more dollars. (A Minority Appraisal) A good session for the majority party, then, rather less so for the loyal opposition. A review of the 92nd General Assembly.
Panelists: Rep. Vivian Flowers (D), Rep. Matthew Shepherd (R), and Sen. Jonathan Dismang (R).
