“Highway Plan Inside” Tax Reform ?

Seems Arkansas GOP lawmakers on the Tax Reform task force have their agendas clearly in mind, yet the task force seems to be off to a slow start. Tax reform is quite a handful, and meanwhile the legislators also need to deal with the (continuing) highway funding issue.

Rep. Joe Jett, chairman of the House Revenue and Tax committee and a member of the legislative tax reform task force, wants to tackle both.  He recently told a reporter:

“It (tax reform and highway funding) all ties together because we’re talking about revenue. I would actually like to see the task force have the highway plan inside of it.”

Seems like an awful lot to ask from hard-working Arkansans unless true reform comes out of the tax task force, Rep. Jett…and by that, we do not mean “revenue neutral” changes.
