Election today (Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011) important to future of Arkansas and adds no new tax

dayGovernor Beebe has called a special election for this Tuesday, November 8, giving Arkansans an opportunity to modernize our Interstates, support jobs, and improve economic development — all without raising taxes.

The Interstate Rehabilitation Program will continue the successful 1999 Interstate rebuilding program by authorizing the Arkansas Highway Commission to re-issue bonds for Interstate maintenance. The bonds will be paid by future federal funds and the existing 4¢ diesel tax approved by voters in 1999. No new taxes and no increase in existing taxes will be necessary to rebuild over 400 miles of Arkansas Interstates.

Join with Governor Beebe and support the 2011 Interstate Rehabilitation Program this Tuesday, November 8. By voting FOR the bond issue, we can make Arkansas Interstates smoother, safer, soo
