LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Governor Asa Hutchinson is asking Arkansans to send in their ideas on how they think they can improve the government.

On Thursday, Hutchinson launched the "MyIdea" project, which is a "direct line" to the state government where the public can "contribute ideas for ways to improve services, increase efficiencies and streamline state government."

"I am truly excited about the launch of MyIdea," the governor said. "This is a great opportunity for the customers of the state government to be heard."

Employees with the Department of Finance and Administration will initially hear the ideas and suggestions before forwarding it to the agency that is "best equipped to assess an idea." The idea will then be sent to the head of that agency where they have 30 days to send a report to Hutchinson.

"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," he said.

You can submit your own ideas at or by phone at (877) 7MY-IDEA or (501) 683-IDEA.

While contact information is needed to submit an idea, all suggestions will be anonymous.
