Legislators Asked For More Highway Funding

Arkansas Highway

A coalition of statewide organizations has written an open letter to legislators supporting “meaningful” increased road funding.

The coalition, which released its letter February 6th, includes the Arkansas Good Roads Foundation, Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, Arkansas Municipal League, Association of Arkansas Counties Foundation, Associated General Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, Arkansas Trucking Association, The Poultry Federation, Arkansas Farm Bureau, Arkansas Asphalt Paving Association, and the American Traffic and Safety Services Association. The coalition was formed late last year.

The letter asks that lawmakers “find meaningful funding now, rather than engage in a fragmented discussion every two years.” It asks that lawmakers not “wait until the final days of the session to have a rushed discussion about such a critical issue.”   MORE
