AARP Arkansas Tackles Ballot Issue One

As November voting quickly approaches, an important ballot issue has surfaced that, if adopted, would have a significant impact on civil suits, especially involving value of life. Therefore, we want to ensure that all Arkansans have background knowledge and information on how each of us could be directly impacted by this legislation. It is extremely important that Arkansas voters are informed and aware of the long term effects changes to this amendment would impose on the fair determination and outcomes of civil lawsuits.
