LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson plans to call a special session this fall for lawmakers to consider new income tax cut proposals.
The Republican governor announced his decision Thursday as lawmakers neared the end of this year’s regular session.
Hutchinson did not detail a specific tax cut proposal but said he’ll call the special session since lawmakers will return to the Capitol anyway to take up congressional redistricting.
The Legislature is expected to recess this year’s session on Tuesday after giving final approval to the state’s proposed $5.8 billion budget.
