Re: “State general revenues below forecast

It'll be interesting to see if this is a blip or a trend.

Re: “Why 'National School Lunch money' is so important to poor kids in Arkansas

I caught Clark on an interview segment earlier this week saying that there are schools where 0% of the students are reading at grade level. Can this be true? 0%?

Re: “Another approach on paying for cancer research: A real tax on smoking

Maybe Juul could redirect all that money they're paying for full page ads in the DOG to UAMS as well?

Re: “The tax man cometh

I spent a couple of hours organizing records, consulting spreadsheets and entering charitable and medical expenses in TurboTax only to find that I fell $200 short of the standard deduction. I think that the 2018 TC&JA will disincentivize charitable giving for a number of taxpayers. That's a concern to me.

Oh yeah, I paid about $100 more to the Feds and got back $158 less from the state.
