Fixing Arkansas highways

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 6:38 AM

Our governance and financing of highway construction and repair are broken. A fix, John Brummett suggests, would begin with changing the Arkansas Constitution.

The problem, I think, is getting all the powerful players who know how to massage the current system comfortable with a reformed system. Wouldn't they want to build in all their customary advantages? You know they would.

A fuel price-based tax system seems like the obvious first step toward improving revenue.
