This is Crazy. We don't need one more taxing authority. If they need money, let them ask the legislature.

People around me don't want most of the proposed projects. We are not NYC nor Atlanta. We are a spread out group of people of which MOST are way below national averages on their pay.

Arkansas should have warning signs at the borders..... Enter if you like low wages and high taxes.

What's happened to toll roads Mr Malone?
Just about double the toll fee for Wal-Mart and Tyson who the main players wanting an additional highway for this area.
Getting their butt-boys in the legislature to do their work and SUBVERT state tax authority policy is underhanded.
WASHINGTON COUNTY do you really want Bentonville and Rogers to be shoving a big tax down your throats to pay for road improvements in Benton County???
What a sham!
