Ark. joint panel looking at 36 proposed amendments

Posted:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A joint committee of the Arkansas Legislature will be looking at all 36 proposals to amend Arkansas' constitution after the House and Senate decided to not whittle down their lists before advancing the measures.

The Senate on Wednesday agreed with its rules committee's ruling that all proposed constitutional amendments filed must be referred to a joint committee. The Legislature can refer up to three proposed amendments to put on the ballot next year.

The Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee on Tuesday had advanced only 6 of the 18 amendments proposed in that chamber. The rules committee said that went against legislative rules.

House Speaker Davy Carter said earlier Wednesday the House will refer all 18 amendments proposed in that chamber to the joint panel as well.
