AG's office rejects wording of alcohol ballot item

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas attorney general's office has rejected wording of a ballot proposal that would allow alcohol sales in all of the state's 75 counties.
    
Attorney General Dustin McDaniel's office on Friday said the text and popular name of the proposal each contained ambiguities.
    
David Couch of Little Rock is sponsoring the item and must have approval of the proposal's wording before being able to start gathering voter signatures.
    
The proposal would repeal laws that allow counties to conduct wet-dry votes and would make alcohol sales legal across the state.
