AR: Tort Reform Via Constitutional Amendment?

House State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Chairwoman Andrea Lea says that consensus is forming for a proposed constitutional amendment on tort reform.  The Arkansas Supreme Court recently struck down several provisions in a decade-old tort reform law.  The proposed constitutional amendment would allow voters to replace those provisions.  The precise content of the potential amendment is not yet available.  The City Wire has details and a link to a podcast in which Lea discusses the issue.
