Groups argue over alcohol measure on ballot

September 26, 2014

LITTLE ROCK — Opponents of a proposal to expand alcohol sales to all Arkansas counties argued Thursday it would lead to liquor stores opening near churches and schools, an accusation the group behind the measure denied as the two sides filed briefs before the state's highest court.

The two groups and state election officials also tangled over whether the state used the right deadline in accepting petitions for the measure, which would legalize alcohol sales in all 75 Arkansas counties. Currently, 37 counties are dry.
