You may have heard about citizen-driven initiatives that will likely be on the ballot this year. There are measures to legalize medical marijuana, limit damages in medical lawsuits and allow three casinos to operate. But along with these, three amendments sponsored by members of the Arkansas General Assembly will be on the ballot this November.
Every general session, the Legislature can refer up to three constitutional amendments for a vote of the people. KUAR's Chris Hickey recently spoke with Kristin Higgins of the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service Public Policy Center about these three proposals.
