LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Attorney General Leslie Rutledge's office has cleared the way for a group calling for legalizing alcohol sales statewide to begin gathering signatures to put the proposal on the 2016 ballot.
Rutledge's office on Tuesday certified the wording of the proposed constitutional amendment to legalize alcohol sales in all 75 Arkansas counties. The proposal must be certified before supporters can begin gathering the nearly 85,000 signatures from registered voters needed to put the proposal on the ballot November 2016.
David Couch, the attorney who submitted the proposal, led the campaign for a similar amendment that voters rejected in November.
