  • The General Assembly of the State of Arkansas finds that:
    • (1) There is an immediate need for highway improvements throughout the State of Arkansas in order to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens and to promote economic development within the state;
    • (2) Through revenues generated pursuant to the Arkansas Highway Financing Act of 1999, § 27-64-201 et seq., the State Highway Commission has been successful in completing the rehabilitation of much of the state's Interstate Highway System and that the rehabilitation has been carried out in an efficient, cost-effective manner;
    • (3) Continued improvement of the Interstate Highway System and other routes on the National Highway System is necessary, and the best way to accomplish the improvements expeditiously is through the issuance of additional federal highway grant anticipation and tax revenue bonds to finance highway improvements;
    • (4) Bonds should be payable from revenues currently designated by the Arkansas Highway Financing Act of 1999, § 27-64-201 et seq., including federal highway assistance funding and the proceeds from the Arkansas Distillate Special Fuel Excise Tax Act of 1999 and the Motor Fuel Excise Tax Act of 1999, §§ 26-55-1005, 26-55-1006, 26-56-201, and 27-72-305, and § 26-56-801 et seq.; and
