Arkansas

When I was involved in the initial creation of the Department of
Homeland Security, we were given a clear twofold mission. The first part of the mission was to secure our borders. The second was to maintain the free and efficient flow of commerce and people.

Making Arkansas the leading pro-work state in America

There is no question that Arkansas is near the top of the list when it comes to pro-work states in America. But the work to make Arkansas the top pro-work state in America is not finished. As Arkansas moves forward with new leadership in the governor’s office, there is a terrific opportunity to build on past success and take Arkansas to the next level.

In 2022, we will:
  • Be a national leader on unemployment reform
  • Maximize welfare-to-work efforts
  • Further secure Arkansas elections
At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.

By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
