    Arkansas Republican Governor Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday that the state would ban the use of “X” on driver’s licenses and that state IDs must identify the individual as either male or female, according to an announcement first shared with The Daily Wire. “This policy is just common sense,” Sanders told The Daily Wire. “Only women give birth, men shouldn’t play women’s sports, and there are only two genders. As long as I’m Governor, Arkansas state government will not endorse nonsense.” “This change announced today reflects a commonsense approach that ensures a license or ID issued by the State of...

    Radical abortion advocates in Arkansas are now approved to collect signatures for an extreme amendment that would legalize killing babies in abortions.

On Tuesday the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office certified a popular name and ballot title for the Arkansas Abortion Amendment of 2024. The measure’s sponsors now can begin collecting the 90,704 petition signatures necessary to place the measure on the ballot this...

    Arkansans for Limited Government reportedly is making a third attempt at placing its pro-abortion amendment on the 2024 ballot in Arkansas. In Arkansas, the attorney general’s office reviews the titles and language of ballot initiatives to ensure the measure’s wording is not misleading or ambiguous. Once approved, the measure’s sponsors can begin collecting petition signatures to place it on the ballot. Attorney General Griffin’s team has previously rejected two versions of the proposed abortion amendment, citing flaws in the measure’s text. If passed, this amendment would write abortion into the Arkansas Constitution and erase decades of good, pro-life laws. Public...
