Arkansas House Speaker on History of Highway Funding

September 10th, 2012

This is the first in a series of videos in which Arkansas House Speaker Robert S. Moore, Jr. discusses the history of highway funding in Arkansas.

From the days when Arkansans owed 5 days of manual labor on our roadways to the current system of a fuel based tax, Speaker Moore summarizes over 100 years of funding issues before the legislature.

Speaker Moore even shares how his own grandfather was part of the history making process in the Arkansas House of Representatives.
