Arkansas lawmakers pass tax cuts in special session | app

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Arkansas lawmakers are meeting this week for a special session on tax cuts and school safety grants, boosted by the state sitting on a $1.6 billion surplus.

Ahead of the session, Democratic lawmakers called for an increase in teacher salaries, but are facing resistance from GOP leaders who say the proposal must wait until next year. The tax cut plan has also raised questions about whether such a cut could jeopardize some of the state’s federal COVID-19 assistance.
