Re: “'Ethics reform' seems to include loopholes for campaign spending

Any proposed legislation involving ethics reform requires very close scrutiny. And after reading this Bill, it appears to me that Will Bond is attempting to tighten up some of the current legislation by more specifically spelling out what expenses are allowed and/or not allowed. I dont believe that this has been written to allow any more expenses than those that are being allowed under current law. I strongly agree that there are evidently current allowable expenses that should not be allowed such as apartment leases as shown in Section (5)(F), and the catch all loophole language in Section (4)(D)(ii)(b). It would be great if those two Sections could be deleted. In his response to Max, Will has indicated that Many lawyers and folks were involved in the drafting of this Bill. What that means to me, unfortunately, is that if Will wants this particular Bill to have any chance of passing, it has been written so as to be able to receive majority votes in both the Senate and House. I truly believe that Will Bond is attempting to tighten some of the loopholes previously adopted. To do nothing is worse !!!

Re: “The case for the ERA, plus oyster suppers that welcome women

Max, consider yourself to be awoken!!! There have been 3 females appointed to the Arkansas Highway Commission - Willie Lawson (Little Rock), Patsy Thomasson (Rison), and Prissy Hickerson (Texarkana). Lawson was appointed by Francis Cherry after passage of the Mack Blackwell Act and drew the 4 year term serving from 1953-57. Thomasson was appointed by David Pryor and served from 1977-87. Hickerson was appointed by Mike Huckabee and served from 1997-2007. Thomasson & Hickerson both served as Chairman in their final 2 years on the Commission. Yes, there should have been more than those three who all served our State quite well.
