The article focuses on the second election for the $250 million general obligation (GO) bond plan of Arkansas on November 7, 2006. Under the terms of Act 1282 of 2005, the governor may call a second election on the bond plan if the original ballot question failed. If voters will approve the GO authorization, $100 million would be used to refinance outstanding debt. And the remaining proceeds will be used to finance projects at public universities and two-year colleges throughout the state.
