Beebe appointees include Fayetteville lawyer to ABC Board

Gov. Mike Beebe made several dozen appointments today. Most notable was Jeff Mitchell, a Fayetteville lawyer, to the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. He succeeds Ron Fuller, who led the board in its expansive use of some seemingly small changes in state law that proved the mechanism to break open legally dry areas with "private clubs" that functionas conventional restaurants with mixed drink permits. See: Conway and Jonesboro, particularly.

When Fuller retired from the Board he indicated he might expand his lobbying business into the alcohol industry.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
