LEGISLATIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Never one to shy away from tough issues or tough votes, Bond’s legislative career is proof he is willing to work hard on difficult issues.

Bond was lead sponsor of Act 60 of 2004, the Public Education Reorganization Act. This Act consolidated school districts with enrollments under 350 in grades K-12. Bond also supported increased funding for K-12 public education and higher teacher salaries. Bond worked with others to support and pass increased funding for Pre-K.

Bond has long been an advocate of increasing opportunities for seniors to live independently as long as possible.

He was lead sponsor of a bill establishing the Arkansas Long Term Care Partnership. The program allowed seniors to protect their assets by purchasing more affordable long-term care insurance and mandated that the insurance include home and community based services. Bond was co-sponsor of a companion act, The Arkansas Options Program which helped inform seniors and their families of all options to maximize independence.

Bond is a strong consumer rights advocate.

With the help of the Attorney General’s office, Bond passed the Fair Gift Card Act, which prevented early expiration of gift cards. Bond also sponsored the Identity Theft Passport Act which offered assistance to individuals who had been victims of identity fraud. On the healthcare front, Bond was lead sponsor of Act 94 of 2005 which made contributions to health savings accounts not taxable for state income purposes.
