Minimum Wage, Term Limits


There were two new developments Monday  regarding Arkansas ballot initiatives that will determine the fate of proposals to raise the minimum wage and shorten term limits.

In separate filings to the Arkansas Supreme Court by specially-appointed masters, the overseers made determinations on the signature gathering process at the heart of the two citizens’ initiatives.

Special Master Mark Hewett, reviewing signatures on a challenge to Issue 3, the term limits amendment, reported that 14,810 petition signatures should be declared invalid. That accounting would drop the term limits proposal below the number of valid signatures needed to qualify for the November 6th general election.     MORE
