The group Arkansans for Clean Water is leading the effort to convince voters at the November election to authorize the Arkansas Natural Resource Commission to issue $300 million of bonds.

The bond measure was put on the general election ballot by the Legislature in 2007. The commission can issue no more than $60 million of the bonds during any two-year budget cycle unless lawmakers approve a larger issue. No more than $100 million of the total proceeds could be allocated to irrigation projects.
