Motorists Vote 2020: Arkansas Road Tax Proponents Already Revving Up

A constitutional amendment to make a half-cent sales tax permanent goes before Arkansas voters on Nov. 3.

Those in favor of the amendment, which would dedicate the tax revenue to the state highway fund, are already out beating the bushes to drum up support. The original tax was passed in 2012 but is set to expire in 2023 — hence, Issue 1 is on the ballot.
