LITTLE ROCK Attorney General Dustin McDaniel on Wednesday rejected a proposed constitutional amendment that would reduce the percentages required for placing an initiative or referendum on the ballot.

The proposal, which also would modify some clauses in Article 5, Section 1, contained several ambiguities, McDaniel said in the opinion.

Article 5 provides for the operations of the Legislature. Section 1 details the number of signatures needed to get a proposed citizens initiative, constitutional amendment or a statewide referendum on the ballot.

The proposal filed by Frederick Scott of Maumelle, who is spokesman for the Little Red Hen Committee, did not specify what percentages of signatures the measure would reduce, McDaniel said in the opinion.

Scott could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
