So you're limiting our potential, the 3,800 young people who are living here in Arkansas (who could benefit from immigration reform), you are limiting the potential of them" Marquez said of Womack's vote against a program known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
"The Democratic one (Halter) talked a lot about the lottery. Now I'm not a fan of the lottery, but last time I checked, because of his efforts, it became law. The last lieutenant governor (Darr) focused on the online checkbook and it's now the law. The takeaway here is lieutenant governor's historically have run with policy ideas in mind and when elected, have pursued policy ideas. The last two were successful in getting those policy ideas enacted. When you are the lieutenant governor, you can advocate for policies to help the state."
...We are encouraged,” Williams said. "While charge-offs remain above historical levels, we feel confident we can effectively manage our losses and produce very attractive cash-on-cash returns on the capital we employ in growing the business.”"
