FRIDAY, JANUARY 20TH
A state legislator from Conway County is in Washington D.C. for the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. Republican Representative Rick Beck of Center Ridge arrived in the nation's capital on Wednesday to find a lot of excitement surrounding the event, but also some tight security.  Representative Beck said Thursday was primarily a work day for him as he and other state legislators, including Senator Jason Rapert of Bigelow, were able to meet with Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton and with Arkansas' Congressional delegation from the U.S. House. Beck says he's excited about being on hand for such an historic event, and he hopes to get as close as he can to the action.  Several events surrounding the inauguration will take place Friday, but the official swearing in of President Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence will begin at 11:00 a.m. central time. The inaugural parade will follow in the afternoon, and the Russellville High School Marching Band is scheduled to perform as part of that celebration...

An Arkansas House committee has thrown a wrinkle into Governor Asa Hutchinson's $50 million tax cut plan, advancing his proposal along with a competing measure from Democrats to give a tax credit to low-income residents. The House Revenue and Taxation Committee on Thursday endorsed the Republican governor's proposal to cut income taxes for residents making less than $21,000 a year. The proposal also creates a legislative task force to recommend further tax cuts by the 2019 session. The committee, which is evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, also supported a proposal to give low-income residents a tax break. Both measures now head to the full House for a vote. The Senate is expected to take up Hutchinson's tax cut proposal on Monday.​..
