December 22, 2016 – Senator Keith Ingram audio report of news from the 90th General Assembly.
In this week’s report:
- Thanks to legislative action in the most recent regular session, Arkansas families will see their income taxes go down by more than $90 million a year.
- In other good news for working families, the legislature met in an April special session to extend Medicaid coverage to about 270,000 Arkansas residents.
- In a second special session in May the legislature approved a road program that enabled Arkansas to qualify for an additional $200 million a year in federal highway funding. Arkansas is at a transportation crossroads, so it is in our best interest to improve two-lane highways, four-lane interstates, bridges, overpasses and intermodal facilities that connect land routes with our ports and harbors.
