I’m pretty sure this ain’t an April Fool’s prank. Heck, it’s in the newspaper!
Thank you Fort Smith area lawmakers and thank you Governor Beebe!
LITTLE ROCK – A $35 million annex to the Capitol and $25 million for a U.S. Marshals Service museum at Fort Smith highlight a list released Wednesday of projects to be funded using the state’s surplus.
What we don’t know is how the money will be allocated — is it for construction only, or will the museum have access to the funding for planning? Most likely, any state dollars will be available no earlier than July 1.
It was unclear Wednesday when legislators would vote on the General Improvement Fund schedule. The list of projects must sit on lawmakers’ desks for three days before they can vote on it.

All I can say is, “Waytago Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma!” Our lawmakers and our governor have heard your unified voice chanting, “Bring It Home!”
Ain’t it amazing what we can do together?
