Without Arkansas’s money, the Lockheed Martin vehicle apparently would be more expensive than competitors to make, though it had said years ago in closing a Texas plant to move product to Arkansas that the Arkansas plant was more cost-efficient.
The new Republican priorities continue.
No tax cut for the bottom 40 percent of taxpayers.
No earned income tax credit for poor workers.
A tax cut for the wealthiest Arkansans.
A total tax exemption for capital gains for the very richest Arkansans.
A $120 million handout to Lockheed Martin.
UPDATE: The Senate approved similar legislation 31-3. Merry Christmas, Lockheed.
