Lottery to stay on ballot
A proposed constitutional amendment to create a state lottery will remain on the November general election ballot, the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled today.
The court rejected arguments by the Family Council Action Committee that the wording of the ballot measure proposed by Lt. Gov. Bill Halter was incomplete and misleading; did not define the term “state lottery,” and did not disclose that the measure could open the door to casino gambling.
Halter and the Family Council Action Committee have scheduled separate news conferences later today to discuss the ruling.
