Exciting News!!! The CARESAct Steering Committee approved our $100M request for broadband expansion in our state. This is not only going to help expand broadband access, but create the jobs to implement the expansion.

As you know I have been working on this issue for sometime.

At a meeting with the Governor - who has been very supportive of this effort - on Tuesday, he asked me how much we should request. I told him $100M. He felt we could do that and it was approved by the committee today. It will need final approval from Legislative Council, which should happen later this month.

I worked with Sen. Jane English, Sen. Irvin, Rep. Wardlaw, Speaker Shepard and others to get the support to help make this investment in our future.

The numbers for July are in and they look encouraging for our state and our conservative policies.

"State tax officials said Tuesday that Arkansas' July net available general revenue was $665.9 million, up 43.9% from the same month last year and 8.6% above forecast.

John Shelnutt, the state's economic forecaster, called the report “stunning.”
