Hardball Response of the Day

Rep. Keven Anderson (R-Rogers), chairman of the House Revenue and Taxation Committee, said he's leaning against Beebe's proposal and criticized the governor for crafting the proposal behind closed doors with natural gas firms before taking it to lawmakers.

"Mr. Anderson's people have told me over and over their number one priority is to get more money for highways in northwest Arkansas because of a crying need. He obviously doesn't think they need highways in northwest Arkansas," [Governor Mike] Beebe told reporters at the Capitol.
