LITTLE ROCK — The secretary of state's office said Thursday that it's cleared the way for three proposed constitutional amendments to appear on this year's ballot, despite questions about who is in charge of preparing the ballot measure language.

An attorney with the secretary of state's office told lawmakers Thursday that it had used language from the attorney general's office and from legislation to prepare the three proposals. The measures must be published in May to appear on the ballot.

A law approved by the Legislature last year took away the attorney general's authority to prepare the popular names of ballot measures referred by the Legislature.

The law affects three proposed constitutional amendments that the Legislature voted last year to put on the ballot.

So what are the approved ballot measures? Seems as if an article about ballot measures just might list the three ballot measures.

Since amendments proposed by the Legislature are always self serving ones, they don't want us to know until the last possible moment. Provides less time for opposition to organize.
