Gov. Asa Hutchinson wants to hear from Arkansans for ideas to improve services, increase efficiency and streamline state government.

The governor launched the state's MyIdea project Thursday and Arkansans can start submitting ideas right away at or by phone at (844) 7MY-IDEA or (501) 683-IDEA.

“This is a great opportunity for the customers of state government to be heard," said Gov. Hutchinson. "I encourage everyone with an idea, however large or small, to submit suggestions to streamline state government and to maximize the efficient use of their tax dollars. I want to lead the way in reducing the cost of state government, and what better source of ideas than the taxpayers who will benefit. By working together, we can cut costs and improve state government for all Arkansans.”

Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) employees will staff the project's telephone line and website and will forward the idea to the appropriate agency.

Hutchinson says each agency has been directed to report back on an idea within 30 days.

The responses will be tracked by the DFA and the Chief Transformation Officer.
