Good Article John, this makes way to much sense..... not sure folks in Arkansas would vote for these... It seems in recent years people have forgotten how to think for themselves....!!!!

What most people don't know that today in the Great State of Arkansas if a State Employee doing his/her job makes a Legislator mad, he or she will go to the committee and have the funds stopped for that State Agency until the Agency backs down or the Governor's Office gets involved (which will not happen with the current governor). To many Appointed State Agency Dept. Heads cow down to the Lunacy Crew in the State House.

Good one, John. Much of this is needed, however probably to many areas covered for it to pass muster.

The Bar ought to drop the damage cap provision, because that will be the thing that gets opposed the most, and therefore get this package defeated. Like Timber noted, it's too much for one amendment, but the Bar may be hoping that people will like most of it enough to vote for all of it. I doubt it. For the most part, the proposal is good government.
