  • THREE SQUARES: Legislators can eat free from morning until night today at the Capitol Hill building.
Here's where legislators — unburdened by Issue 3 — will get free meals and drinks today and their payees:

BREAKFAST:
7-8 a.m., Capitol Hill Building: Arkansas Forestry Association, Max Braswell, Arkansas Timber Producers Aassociation, Larry Boccarossa, Arkansas Forest and Paper Council, Brent Stevenson.

LUNCH
Noon–1:30 p.m.. Capitol Hill Building. Arkansas Bankers Association, Ava Franks.

COCKTAILS AND DINNER
5:30 p.m., Capitol Hill Building. Poultry Federation, Marvin Childers.

You, the taxpayer, are not invited to the hog sloppings, though you may be sure your business is being discussed.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    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.
