In an unprecedented move, certain members of the Arkansas Legislature have advanced to the ballot a proposal to raise sales taxes on Arkansas families in order to pay for highways.
Of course, voters agreed just last year to let the Highway Commission borrow $575 million dollars. Now they are asking for even more. We believe they will keep asking for more until we tell them "no."
Members of Better Spending First affirm the following statement: "We believe in good roads, but we don't believe the money being spent on new road construction is being well spent. We are opposed to the proposed sales tax increase on the ballot this November, and are opposed to any and all tax increases until there is fundamental reform in the way the state allocates highway dollars."
Please Join us in demanding Better Spending First before We the People agree to any tax increase.
