It's time to put Arkansas families’ needs first in future spending. There are many options for our state dollars, but some things can give Arkansas families the best chance to get ahead.
The Arkansas legislature recently passed $102 million in tax cuts. The median wage earner in Arkansas will pay just under $40 less per year in taxes with the plan. Low-income families saw no tax relief at all despite already being taxed more than any other income group. Legislators continue to propose further tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Arkansans, but this is the wrong priority for Arkansas today.
