The review process is flawed and I have to view Rutledge's statement with suspicion based on her prior actions. I think too often she has used the AR Supreme Court's ruling as a cover for rejecting ballot initiatives she deems inconsistent with her political beliefs or those of her party. Her last ruling against Couch's fair wage initiative was so picky nothing could have ever made it on the ballot.
...
However, with her not providing more clarity on her calls for changes to the process it seems she is using this for political cover, knowing the legislature will chew on this for a couple of sessions if it even makes it out of committee.

She is a joke and seems to turn down the ones she personally doesn't like. She is a Terrible AG and doesn't have a clue how to do the job.
