LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has cleared the way for a group to try to put on the 2016 ballot a measure cutting the number of proposed constitutional amendments lawmakers can refer to voters.

Rutledge on Tuesday certified the wording of the proposal by the Little Red Hen Committee to cut the number of proposed amendments the Legislature can refer to voters each regular session from three to one. The Legislature meets in regular session in odd-numbered years.

Rutledge’s certification clears the way for the group to begin gathering the more than 84,000 signatures from registered voters needed to put the proposal on the 2016 ballot.
