Pro-Casino Group Sues Arkansas Attorney General

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) -- A group that is pushing for an amendment to allow casinos in Arkansas is suing Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

The suit was filed yesterday after Rutledge rejected Driving Arkansas Forward's ballot measure proposal for a fourth time.

In order for the issue to make the November ballot, it must first be approved by Arkansas Attorney General, Leslie Rutledge and receive close to 85,000 signatures from registered voters by July 6th.  

The amendment also includes the creation of a five-member Arkansas gaming commission, to make sure the casinos are regulated properly.

Now Driving Arkansas Forward is directly petitioning the Arkansas Supreme Court for an accelerated consideration of its amendment.
