BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER FOR A COMMON GOOD - THE RESULTS

You elected me as your Senator, and you deserve to know the results.  My priorities in serving you as both Representative as well as Senator were to help our most fragile children and families, protect our environment, and provide tax relief. Here's what we did:

The Children.

As Co-Chairman of the Autism Task Force, I co-authored and passed legislation that provides insurance coverage to kids and families that suffer from Autism. See the page devoted to this issue on my website.

The Environment.

We passed legislation creating a voluntary conservation easement to help protect the quality of streams, rivers and lakes.

Needed Tax Relief.

As Vice Chairman of the House Budget Committee, and as a member of the Revenue and Tax Committee, I advanced a balanced budget at a time when other states were operating at huge deficits.  I believe we must operate within our means, but I also supported nine tax cut bills that became law, providing $31 million in tax relief to Arkansas families, this year alone.
