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.
