From the office of Congressman Tim Griffin regarding the possible reduction of the Little Rock Air Force Base:

"The Obama Administration has proposed cuts to LRAFB’s C-130 force structure down the road, but last month, we passed legislation that requires the Administration to present Congress with a plan that justifies any potential cuts before they can occur, and I’ll continue to work with the other members of the Arkansas Congressional Delegation to ensure LRAFB remains the C-130 capital of the world and center of excellence."

Beebe says GOP plan could result in 61 Ark. layoffs

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A proposal to cut three percent of the Governor's budget.

The GOP counter-budget would cut three percent, or $21 million, of the Governor Mike Beebe's $4.7 billion state budget.

The Governor reviewed the proposed cuts and asked state agencies to do the same.

Those agencies came back stating the cuts will lead to reductions in services and personnel.

But Republican lawmakers say that may not happen at all...setting the stage for a battle of the budget.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"At the end of the day, it's going to take agreement to get anything done and that is important," said Republican John Burris, the House Minority Leader.

Democratic House Majority Leader Johnnie Roebuck said the budget has already been thoroughly reviewed.
