Capitol View: Partial Government shutdown impacting Arkansas


On Capitol View this week, the partial government shutdown is being felt across the country, including in Arkansas.

It is now the longest in U.S. history. KNWA’s Jessi Turnure is joined by Chris Williams, assistant professor of Political Science at UALR, who talks about the impact shutdown is having on the Natural State.

“The electoral incentives from both sides are to hold fast and dig in your heels, if that’s the case, then it makes sense that it could last for a lot longer than one would hope,” Williams said. 

For more of the conversation, as well as a preview of issues before the 2019 legislative session, listen to the Capitol View podcast.

Capitol View airs Sunday mornings on our sister station KNWA.
