This episode of Talk Business and Politics with Roby Brock features guest John Brummett from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, discussing two main topics.

The first is a controversy involving the Department of Corrections where a contract with their outside legal counsel raised issues with the state legislature, highlighting problems in contract management and the potential implications on public perception and constitutional responsibilities.

The second topic covers a policy change by the Department of Finance Administration regarding the removal of the 'X' gender marker option on Arkansas drivers' licenses. The change is questioned for its emergency status and is speculated to be a political move by the governor, reflecting on national politics and state branding.
