As expected, the tobacco tax came out of the speaker-selected House Rules Committee without opposition from members. A tobacco wholesaler spoke in opposition.

ALSO TODAY: The bill to provide a work-around of the Electoral College was endorsed in a House committee today (good). Committee Repubs oppose one-man-one-vote. BY POPULAR DEMAND: A chart that illustrates how votes in lightly populated states count more than votes in Arkansas and elsewhere, all thanks to Electoral College.

AND ALSO: Gov. Beebe signed the animal cruelty bill today. Just in time for some demagoguing tomorrow by Rev. Ragland, who has a resolution urging Congress to preserve horse slaughtering businesses.No need in wasting money on feeding unwanted horses when they can be killed and cut up for food, says Bro. Ragland.
