Beebe's disclosure

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 5:02 PM

Public officials had to file financial disclosure statements by today. Here's Gov. Mike Beebe's, including some reported free travel to Europe courtesy of the state economic development agency.

Spokesman Matt DeCample notes the governor's form has been changed slightly from last year to address a question I raised about his income reporting. The governor reported the value of his holdings ( muni bonds and CDs) last year, but I questioned whether some individual sources produced income of more than $12,500. The form didn't reflect that, though I thought it was likely and should have been reported. The governor thought the disclosure of value of each of the holdings was sufficient. But to avoid even the question this year, he provided further income specifics. They show income of more than $12,500 from certificates of deposit at two banks and from the Morgan Keegan investment firm.
