On Budget & Economy: Will work to slow the out-of-control growth of government

Our priorities are reflected in our budget. Hard as it may be, I made a promise to the people of Arkansas that we would work to slow the out-of-control growth of government. With the help of my Cabinet, we kept it. This year's budget increases spending by only 1.76%, far below the 3% year-over-year increase we've averaged in recent years. Send me a budget that funds critical services for Arkansans while slowing the growth of government and I will sign it.

On Crime: No more catch and early release of violent repeat offenders

Last year, the legislature passed, and I signed Death by Delivery, which charges fentanyl dealers with murder if the drugs they traffic cause a fatal overdose. And we came together again to pass the Protect Act. No more catch and early release of violent repeat offenders. In Arkansas, we will keep the most dangerous criminals off our streets. We're paving the way to build a new, 3,000-bed prison. And we've opened up 1,000 beds in our existing capacity to take pressure off local jails.

On Education: Expanded education freedom to more than 5000 students

Before this year, Arkansas families had no choice where to send their kids to school. LEARNS expanded education freedom to more than five thousand students in just one year. 50 percent of those students have learning disabilities. Year One of the LEARNS Act targeted the most at-risk students in our state. But education freedom is for everyone, and soon, Education Freedom Accounts will be too.

On Principles & Values: We put our trust in our families and our faith in God

The greatest privilege of this job is being with the people of Arkansas, who no matter what will never be broken. We are humble and we are gracious. We work hard and we take care of each other. We put our trust in our families and our faith in God. May we never forget who we are and who we serve. And let us never be afraid to charge boldly ahead. God bless you and may God bless the great State of Arkansas. Thank you.

On Tax Reform: Committed to responsibly phasing out state income tax rate

That's because as revenues climb and costs slow, we'll have room to cut taxes. We've already done so by more than $300 million. I'm committed to responsibly phasing out our state income tax rate and letting everyone keep more of their hard-earned money.
