Constitutional Emergency

Not only does Holt have a 100% conservative voting record on conservative issues like abortion, traditional marriage, gun rights, etc. but he also has a 100% conservative record on lower taxes and less government as exemplified by the following votes.



(Note: Senator Holt did not vote for the alcohol bill that Senator Gilbert Baker co-sponsored and Senator Kim Hendren voted for that allowed the ABC Board to grant numerous liquor licenses to so called private clubs in dry counties in Arkansas. Senator Baker was the only co-sponsor of HB2749 (ACT 1813) that was sponsored by a liberal Representative in the House, and the bill passed the Senate by one vote. Approximately 133 liquor licenses have been granted in dry counties since this bill was passed.



· Senator Jim Holt voted against the bill for $360 million tax increase that resulted in an increase of our sales tax to 6%. Act 59 (SB42) Holt was one of two Republicans voting against this bill and one of eleven senators altogether voting against it. (There were 35 senators and eight of them were Republicans.)



Senator Jim Holt: NO Senator Gilbert Baker: Yes Senator Kim Hendren: Yes



· Senator Jim Holt voted against the facilities bill that allows the State to take over all school facilities in Arkansas. The study on the Facilities issue recommended $4.5 billion to repair schools in Arkansas. The bill gave the State Board of Education the right to prioritize and control ALL improvements, building, and major equipment spending on school buildings IN THE STATE. At the time of this bill less than 10 states in the nation had similar laws on facilities. Holt was one of two Republicans voting against this bill and four senators altogether. Act 90 (HB1009) by Betty Picket



Senator Jim Holt: NO Senator Gilbert Baker: Yes Senator Kim Hendren: Yes



· Senator Holt voted against the Omnibus bill ((a 50 plus page bill) which implemented a government controlled curriculum in every school in Arkansas and expanded government control of schools in numerous areas, allowing the state board of education to take over schools even the first year schools did not meet state's requirements. Only two Republican senators voted against it, and five senators altogether. Act 1467 (HB 2697)



Senator Jim Holt: NO Senator Gilbert Baker: Yes Senator Kim Hendren: NO



· Senator Jim Holt voted against the failed SB28, the consolidation and reorganization plan by Senator Argue to consolidate schools under 500, and against Act 60 (HB1109) for consolidating small schools and extending government control and regulation. The state already had about 30 school districts where students were riding the bus 3 1/2 hours a day, and this would have extended these long bus rides to many, many more school districts. Holt was one of two Republican senators voting against the bill. Act 60 (HB 1109)



Senator Jim Holt: NO Senator Gilbert Baker: Yes Senator Kim Hendren: Yes



· Senator Holt voted against the funding bill of $439 million a year, that included 22 million dollars for five days of worthless staff development. Eighty-six percent of teachers on an Arkansas teachers’ survey agreed staff development was worthless. Holt was one of two Republican Senators voting against it and among eleven senators altogether voting against it. Act 59 (SB42)



Senator Jim Holt: NO Senator Gilbert Baker: Yes Senator Kim Hendren: Yes



· Senator Holt voted against the bill that paid an Ohio company $10 million to assess the school buildings in the state as a basis for a bill for the state to control the school buildings in the state. The study came back saying the state needed $4.5 billion to update school buildings in Arkansas. Act 84 (SB7)



Holt voted against the $107 million bill for 32 new State Department of Education employees, to give $107 million dollars to Arkansas Department of Education for 32 new employees (growing government). Act 98 (SB91)



Senator Jim Holt: NO Senator Gilbert Baker: Yes Senator Kim Hendren: Yes





No one knows how the other five candidates, that have no voting record, will vote or if they will yield to the pressure and forsake the conservative principles on lower taxes and less government. Based on the past performances, the odds are almost zero.
