Gov. Mike Beebe has scheduled an economic development announced Thursday at the Hino Motors axle plant in Marion.

Might a Hino plant expansion for truck assembly be in the works after all? Reports in April said it had been ruled out, about the time that a variety of questions were emerging about air quality and workforce in Arkansas when Hino-parent Toyota spurned Marion for a car assembly site.

Beebe release on the jump.
