Officials update lawmakers

July 19, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — State highway officials are updating lawmakers on the road projects that will be funded with a half-cent sales tax that took effect this month.

Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Director Scott Bennett is scheduled to appear Thursday before a legislative committee to talk about the new road projects. Voters last year approved the tax, which will raise about $1.8 billion during the next decade for the state's highway needs. The half-cent tax increase is set to expire by 2023.
