Wednesday Headlines: In Arkansas, Election to Decide Water Bond Program

Posted in Arkansas, Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma at 1:59 pm by bengann

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe said he expects voters to approve a $300 million bond issue for water projects in November, provided they understand it will not raise their taxes. The measure would extend a $300 billion bond program approved by voters 10 years ago, and would renew bonding authority for the state’s grant and loan program for water, sewer and waste disposal projects.
