March 30, 2017- Senator Keith Ingram audio report of news from the 91st General Assembly.
In this week’s report:
- The last important bill that gets passed in a regular session of the legislature is the Revenue Stabilization Act, which is the peculiar Arkansas name for a balanced budget law.
- Arkansas state government operates under the same financial principles as your family does. When money is slow coming in, we cut back on spending. That is the essence of the Revenue Stabilization Act.
- The public school fund is a top priority, in large part because of the mandate in the Arkansas Constitution that state government provide all children with an adequate education.
- It looks like it will take a last minute miracle for a highway bill to be passed this session. Our highway needs are fast reaching the critical stage, so the legislature will have to step up and pass a highway program sometime in the near future.
