A venture to this state park is on the must-do list for many, the park being the only spot in North America where you can dig for diamonds and other gemstones and keep your finds.
New polling by Talk Business and Hendrix College indicates coolness to taxes for highway work among Arkansas voters.
On July 19, the robopoll questioned 585 voters on a proposed initiated act to raise the severance tax on natural gas, with proceeds to go to state, city and county road work and also on a legislatively referred constitutional amendment that would raise the state sales tax by a half-cent to support a bond issue to build four-lane roads.
Voters were cool to both ideas, particularly to the severance tax increase, which won't make the ballot anyway. A petition drive fell far short of gathering sufficient signatures. On the severance tax, the poll said: 33 percent yes; 54.5 percent no, and 12.5 percent don't know.
On the sales tax, the poll said: 42 percent yes; 49 percent no, and 8.5 percent don't know.
The results mirrored March polling. Demographic notes: men and Democrats tended to be more favorable to the ideas.
