Ballot Measures Discussed Among Officials On The City Wire


On this week’s City Wire, a full bag of topics that could affect the state if they make it to the November ballot.

Michael Lindsey with the Rogers-Lowell Chamber of Commerce joins us with the chamber’s stance on issues affecting Northwest Arkansas specifically, like the battle to sell booze in Benton County, and the highway bond tax, funding for Interstate-540.

Randy Zook, the President of the Arkansas State Chamber traveled from his office at the state capital. He has a strong stance against the proposed severance tax on natural gas. While he’s here, he also weighs in on the chamber’s stance on the Supreme Court’s health care ruling and the other state issues.

Roby Brock, our state political guru, joins us on Skype after interviewing the only man who has formally announced his race for governor in 2014, the Attorney General, Mr. Dustin McDaniel. They talk numbers. You won’t believe how much he estimates to spend on the upcoming campaign.
