Gov. Mike Beebe (D) named former Speaker of the House Robert Moore of Arkansas City to the Arkansas Highway Commission.
Moore was a leader on trying to develop a roads program during his term as House Speaker in the 2011 legislative session.
“As Speaker of the House of Representatives, Robert was an outspoken and successful advocate for improving Arkansas highways and our State as a whole,” Beebe said. “He will continue that work on the Commission while providing a strong voice to represent South Arkansas.”
Moore, 68, grew up in southeast Arkansas and graduated from Ouachita Baptist University. Moore served two decades as Director of the Alcoholic Beverage Control and was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives in 2006.
Moore replaces Madison Murphy on the Highway Commission. His appointment expires January 14, 2023.
