Moving Arkansas Forward into the 21st Century. Legislative Program for the 77th General Assembly.
Arkansas State Office of the Governor, Little Rock.
This document presents the legislative program advocated by the Governor of Arkansas that was scheduled to be sent to the Arkansas Legislature in January 1989. The program expresses the needs of the state in terms of its ability to compete with the rest of the country in education, jobs, economic development, and prosperity, and it points out the costs of those needs in terms of better education and higher taxes. The five sections of the program cover the following areas: (1) investing in education (public education, higher education, strengthening vocational training, reducing illiteracy); (2) investing in people (preventive health care for mothers and infants, needs of adolescents, family preservation, other health care issues, needs of state employees, housing for homeless); (3) investing in communities (economic development, environmental matters); (4) investing in law enforcement (prisons, state police and crime laboratory); and (5) tax reform.
