Arkansas voters love term limits, but Arkansas legislators hate term limits. And the legislators worked to trick voters last year into gutting the term limits law.
Let me sum up the issue: Legislators put a bunch of feel good anti-lobbyist and limiting pay raise fluff into a 20+ page constitutional amendment package and included a provision to weaken voter approved term limits at the very end. Voters got a sweet sounding ballot title (read more here) and narrowly approved the measure 53-47. After the measure passed the lobbyist rules quickly become irrelevant and the legislators get a huge pay raise.

Now term limits supporters have organized and are getting ready to circulate petitions to bring back voter supported term limits.
