LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Attorney General's Office is reviewing language for a proposal to turn the entire state of Arkansas wet.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Attorney General's Office is reviewing language for a proposal to turn the entire state of Arkansas wet.

The statewide alcohol sales issue is back before the AG as supporters plan to petition to get it on the November ballot.

The head of the Alcohol and Beverage control says the wet-dry debate has changed drastically over the last decade.

"Very much a discussion about principles beliefs a quality of life and people on both sides were local, now people pushing to get into wet areas are not local, it is a national corporation or international corporation," says Michael Langley.

Langley says if passed the state would benefit greatly from the added jobs and tax dollars.

He adds there would be plenty of opposition from people who feel it should remain a local issue. The AG has 10 days to review the proposed ballot title.
