Arkansas House fails to pass amendment to spending bill

This article was published February 18, 2013 at 5:55 p.m.

The House of Representatives on Monday narrowly failed to pass an amendment to House Bill 1041, which would cap the growth of state government spending at 3 percent per year in most instances. Overall, 49 legislators voted for the proposal; 42 voted against it; and 9 didn’t vote. The amendment, which was offered by the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Hot Springs, made clear that the cap applied to the state’s net general revenue instead of gross revenue.
