I wanted to share a website that a friend of mine sent me today.  If you live in Arkansas, please take a moment to visit the site and fill out the survey about how the gap in highway funding could potentially be bridged.  As many of you know, Arkansas is a "pay as you go" state, which most often leads to lack of funding for much-needed growth projects, not to mention maintaining current infrastructure.

The purpose of BlueRibbonHighways.com is to inform Arkansans about our state's public roads. And to bring you up to date on the current funding for maintenance and construction. We also want you to know where the money comes from and where the money goes, as well as the revenue gap between state revenues that are growing and revenues that aren't. Moving Arkansas forward means knowing the future needs for highways, roads, streets and bridges. Plus, we want to know what you would do to modernize our roads and the system that maintains what we have and builds what we need.

The Blue Ribbon Committee on Highway Finance was established by Act 374 of 2009. It states the committee shall, "...actively involve the public as full and valued partners in determining adequate financing of the present and future needs of state highways,county roads, and city streets within the state."
