Roby Brock reports that organizers of two state constitutional amendment campaigns say they’ll turn in petitions with sufficident signatures to qualify for the ballot by Friday’s deadline.

One is the Secure Arkansas amendment to punish undocumented aliensand anybody with a mind to help them.

The other is a Texas promoter’s latest casino expansion proposal. It would allow unregulated casinos in seven counties.

Just turning in signatures doesn’t mean they are valid signatures. There’ll be a review and that sometimes includes an extension to cure shortcomings.
