11. How should Arkansas address our illegal immigrant population?
Larry Teague (Democrat)
I think that the Federal Government must eventually seal the border before any great strides can be made. In Arkansas - at this time - workers are at a shortage with unemployment as low as it is.
12. How can Arkansas prevent mass shootings?
Larry Teague (Democrat)
I don't think that mass shootings can be prevented. Hopefully we can minimize them. As far as schools go, I would support a 6 foot chain link fence around every school building with only one entrance with an armed guard stationed at the entrance. I am afraid that will make the schools look like prisons but it is a start. Hopefully there is some technology that will help. I do not support gun control and I don't believe it would help.
13. What specific legislation will you work to enact?
Larry Teague (Democrat)
I always think that the bills that I help kill are more important than the ones I pass. I don't particularly have an agenda other than trying to make sure that we don't spend more money than we have. As the current Senate Budget chair I devote most of my time to working on the budget.
