Nearing the end of his second term as governor, Mike Beebe has made improving education, expanding the state’s economy and cutting taxes his top priorities.
Since he took office in 2007, the state has achieved more than $1.6 billion in tax relief and the state’s sales tax on groceries has been reduced from 6 percent to 1.5 percent. In his 2013 State of the State address, Beebe urged the Legislature to support Medicaid expansion, and later that year he signed into law Arkansas’ “private option” to use federal Medicaid money to purchase private insurance for thousands of low-income residents.
He practiced law in Searcy for several years and spent 20 years in the state Senate before serving one term as the state’s attorney general starting in 2003.
