Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge yesterday rejected, once again, a proposed constitutional amendment to expand casino gambling in Arkansas. The proposal, by Barry Emigh of Hot Springs, would legalize gambling and authorize something called the Fairplay Holdings Ballot Question Committee to license casinos following ballot measures in local cities and counties. Rutledge found that the proposed ballot measure was overly long, complex and confusing. Honestly, it is on the confusing side.
