LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas board has approved a ballot title and popular name for a proposed constitutional amendment that would shift the authority for redrawing legislative and congressional boundaries for the next decade. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the state Board of Election Commissioners voted Wednesday to advance the amendment proposed by The Arkansas Voters First. The measure would allow a new commission, including three Democrats, three Republicans and three independents, to redraw the legislative districts. The state Board of Apportionment, which is made up of the governor, attorney general and secretary of state, has that authority now.
