Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee has highlighted the increasing influx of people from states like California to Arkansas, due primarily to the state’s lower cost of living, better quality of life, and more family-friendly environment.
The state has seen a significant rise in inbound migration, as the government has focused on education reforms, tax cuts, and major investments in outdoor recreation, making Arkansas an attractive place to live and work.
“Ask people why they’re leaving blue states like California, and they’ll give you a lot of answers: more freedom, a lower cost of living, a more family-friendly quality of life,” Huckabee wrote. (Trending: Is It Time For Joe Biden To Drop Out Of 2024?)

“But a lot of them are just tired. Tired of the lockdowns, tired of the crime, tired of the preening politicians who won’t do anything to address the real issues they’re facing.”
“As governor of Arkansas, I’ve had my chance to ask that question a lot of times. That’s because our state has received a steady influx of new residents for years. Today, there are thousands of California refugees – and thousands more from other states – in our state.”
“This year alone, about 32,000 new people moved to Arkansas, about 10% of them from California. Arkansas is now one of the top five states for inbound migration. And the flow isn’t slowing down anytime soon.”
“That’s because my administration is focused on the reforms that will make Arkansas the best state in the country to live, work and raise a family.”
The cost of living is much lower compared to California, with housing and healthcare being significantly cheaper. (Trending: CNN Poll Is Bad News For Biden)
“Imagine a family struggling to eke it out in California. For $500,000 – no small sum – they could afford a tiny fixer-upper in East LA. With that money in Little Rock, you could get a modern, 4,000-square-foot, custom-built home in one of our best neighborhoods.”
“Taxes are another way we beat our coastal competition. Already this year, we cut the top individual income tax rate twice and built the groundwork to phase out the state income tax entirely. Our tax rate is about a third of that in California and going down.”
Arkansas also boasts a thriving economy and abundant outdoor opportunities, making it an appealing destination for those seeking a better quality of life.
“As 48 million people discovered for themselves in 2022, Arkansas is, for good reason, the Natural State. From world-class duck hunting to fly-fishing, there are outdoor adventures for everyone – many of which are located just minutes from our urban centers,” she pressed.
