LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Asa Hutchinson has announced members of a task force on highway funding.

Hutchinson on Wednesday released the names of 20 members of the Working Group on Highway Funding.

The group will be chaired by Duncan Baird, who is Hutchinson’s budget director. Other members include state lawmakers, city and county elected officials, highway commission and transportation department officials, representatives from chambers of commerce and economic development, the road construction industry and higher education.

Hutchinson promised to create the working group after he opposed an effort during this year’s Legislative session to gradually transfer tax revenue from automobile-related items to the highway system.
