Governor Says Internal Polling Suggests Support For Highway Proposal

(TB&P) — Gov. Asa Hutchinson said internal polling he’s conducted shows strong support for passage of the half-cent sales tax for Arkansas highways.

Appearing on this week’s edition of Talk Business & Politics, Hutchinson said that the proposal to make permanent a half-cent sales tax for roads has backing from Arkansas voters.

“We actually did some polling on that issue before we made the announcement [Friday], and it was about 62% of Arkansans either will vote for or probably vote for Issue 1, which is the extension of the half cent sales tax, and so we were very pleased with that,” he said. “It still indicates, you’ve got to run a campaign because those that probably, you want to make sure they have all the facts and will actually vote for it.”
