Capitol View Extra – Rep. Steve Womack discusses Inauguration, working with Biden administration

Capitol View

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Sometimes 30 minutes just isn’t enough.

In a bonus interview from Capitol View, Rep. Steve Womack (AR-3) stops by to share his thoughts on the inauguration, the first days of the Biden administration and his legislative priorities for northwest Arkansas.

While he wished Pres. Joe Biden well on social media in the hours ahead of the inauguration, Womack has already taken issue with the first executive orders signed by the president, saying the moves “threaten American jobs, energy independence, and security.”

The northwest Arkansas representative is among a number of Arkansas lawmakers critical of many of the Biden administration’s first moves, including Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who joined Capitol View this week to share his own thoughts on Inauguration Day and how the Natural State would work with new federal leadership.

In the 117th Congress, Womack serves on the House Appropriations Committee, where he is the Ranking Member on the Financial Services and General Government subcommittee.
