[gdal-dev] Reprojection issue that works in GDAL 2.4.0 but not 3.0+

I am trying to go from (this is the .prj from an ESRI shapefile)

to EPSG:4326

I have a version of GDAL that is 2.4.0 with PROJ version 6.0.0 and it
re-projects just fine. When trying to re-project in 3.0+ it'll put a shape
that should be in Arkansas to somewhere in NorthEast Canada. I tried GDAL
3.0 with the latest PROJ as well as forcing it to 6.1.0 and 6.0.0 but still
it did not work.
Something strange did happen when I changed to proj 6.0.0 with GDAL v3.0+
I received this error:
" ERROR 1: Failed to reproject feature 0 (geometry probably out of source
or destination SRS).
  ERROR 1: Terminating translation prematurely after failed"

but that goes away after updated proj 6.1.0 and to 6.3.0


In the above link orange is GDAL 3.0
teal/blue is GDAL 2.4.0.
Changing PROJ version had no effect.
