Arkansas Governor Launches Campaign to Keep Gas Tax

LITTLE ROCK, AR (Ben Caxton) — Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson launched a campaign to convince voters to make a 1/2 cent gasoline tax hike approved in 2012, permanent. Without action, the tax is set to expire in 2023. Hutchinson says the tax provides more than $205 million a year in highway funding and called the effort his “top priority” among next year’s ballot initiatives. Hutchinson says the tax helps the economy and has the backing of the state Chamber of Commerce, the Arkansas Trucking Association and the Poultry Federation.
