Mayor Perrin attended Gov. Hutchinson’s announcement of the effort to upgrade Arkansas highways and roads Friday morning in Little Rock. The governor said the ballot initiative to extend the current tax will protect $43 million to repair Arkansas’ crumbling infrastructure, as well as create thousands of construction jobs and billions in economic impact. Hutchinson said Arkansas desperately needs improved farm-to-market roads, and major highways and bridges are beset with flaws.
