We've watched in disbelief as Washington politicians have driven the Federal debt to historic levels. Compared to Washington politicians, Arkansas has demonstrated some restraint in government spending, but the fact remains we can do more. Our property tax rates are too high and rise too fast, and our state income tax is higher than that of all of the surrounding states. We must make tough choices and find ways to minimize the tax burden on the people and businesses in Arkansas, and encourage new businesses to locate here. That means keeping our needs separate from our wants and funding those critical things which are necessary and proper for the government while encouraging innovative ways to provide non-essential services. In the process, Arkansas can be a beacon of responsible government that the entire country can follow.
