Well I assume they need the money. It is high time we revisit the 1/8 cent sales tax. Anyone else remember all the funded by 1/8 cent tax tags. Now they want money from everyone on a lotto elk chance. Maybe they would like to go back to meeting the budget off license and fee only. I do see that on all the walking trails.

This kind of stuff has become par for the course for today's post sales tax amendment Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. They have gone from a one time credible blood and guts Game and Fish agency to an unanswerable overgrown fuzzy feel good quasi law enforcement/ non game management outfit who's main focus has become spending money and growing their agency in a direction away from game management. Why Arkansas' huntin' community and the rest of the people of Arkansas ever agreed to let the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission spend taxpayer money any ole way they wanna spend it without being held accountable to the people for the way they spend it, is way beyond my comprehension.... :smack:

I would fully support a legitimate effort to get this tax repealed. They need to be returned to their role as defined originally. Maybe even that amendment need to be revisited.
