AR-State House: Republicans Heavy On Two Committees

    39

    Per Roby Brock:

    Republicans picked up big numbers in the House Transportation and House Revenue and Tax committees.  The GOP garnered 11 members on Transportation and 12 members on the 20-member Tax committee.

    Those developments present a scenario for contentious debates on highway funding and state tax policy between legislators, the Beebe administration and the Arkansas Highway Commission.

    Also from that article, Rep. Kathy Webb (D-37) was named chair of the Joint Budget Committee, of which she previously served as vice-chair.  At the risk of sounding Republican, I like having a small business owner heading up the budget committee.
