Arkansas lawmakers focus on ethics, tax cuts in 2019 session

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Arkansas legislative leaders want to clean up the Capitol’s image in the wake of an ongoing corruption scandal and Gov. Asa Hutchinson is pushing for another cut in the state’s income taxes as lawmakers gather Monday to kick off the 2019 legislative session.

Republicans remain firmly in control of the House and Senate and Hutchinson, a Republican, will be sworn in for a second term the day after the session begins.

Hutchinson says his top agenda items include his proposal to cut the state’s top income tax rate, as well as simplify tax tables and brackets. He also wants lawmakers to move quickly on his plan to cut the number of departments answering directly to him from 42 to 15.
