Supreme Court Denies Term Limits Measure


Voters will not be voting on tightening legislative term limits this year after the Arkansas Supreme Court Friday declined to reverse a decision by a special master that invalidated signatures collected for the effort.

Following a 4-3 decision, Justice Shawn Womack wrote for the majority that the special master appointed by the Supreme Court, former Judge Mark Hewitt, had not erred in invalidating 14,806 signatures.

The proposed amendment, Issue 3, would have limited legislative terms to two four-year terms in the Senate and three two-year terms in the House. Legislators would have been limited to 10 years of cumulative service.    MORE
