The Citizens First Congress, a coalition of Arkansas community organizations, hosted a rally against the GOP tax bill at the state capitol in Little Rock. Times photographer Brian Chilson was on the scene.

A congressional conference committee agreed on a final version of the tax bill yesterday and a vote is expected in the U.S. House and Senate this week. The bill is hideously unpopular but is expected to pass on a party-line vote.

The Citizens First Congress state on its Facebook page for the rally:

Both the Senate and House tax bills are costly new giveaways to the very wealthy and major corporations at the expense of working families, including tens of millions of low-income and middle-class Americans who actually would face a tax increase. In Arkansas, approximately half of the benefits of this tax cut will go to the top 5 percent of earners. By voting for this bill, Arkansas Senators Tom Cotton and John Boozman voted against the best interests of our children and hardworking families!
