- HomePlanned Constitutional Amendment #1
Issue #1

Thank you, Arkansas, for your support of Issue Number 1!

We're ready to get to work!

When this temporary, 1/2¢ sales tax takes effect July 1st, 2013, it will support a $1.8 Billion highway program. That program will include continued construction of four-lane highways to connect all four corners of the state, and widening existing highways to help ease congestion--all within the next ten years!
And, when the bonds are repaid (no later than 2023), this temporary tax will be abolished by the Constitution.
Also--Issue Number 1 will provide approximately $700 million in turnback revenue for cities and counties.
Thanks to you, we're investing in ourselves, and taking a big step towards making our state's highway system among the best in the nation!
Here's what you'll see happen over the next ten years:
