Casino Amendment Cleared For Ballot, Term Limits Gets Legal Challenge

The Arkansas Casino Gaming Amendment of 2018 was cleared for the November ballot by Secretary of State Mark Martin, while a legal challenge was filed against the Arkansas Term Limits proposal.

Officials with Driving Arkansas Forward received word that their signatures cleared the threshold required by state officials. The amendment authorizes two new casinos – one in Jefferson County and one in Pope County – while enhancing the gaming operations at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs and Southland Park Gaming and Racing in West Memphis. Tax revenues would be used for general state revenue, local revenue and purse enhancements at Oaklawn and Southland.   MORE
