The signature submission deadline is over for legislative initiatives to be included in the fall ballot and the results:

1. Statewide sell of alcoholic beverages: well over the required 63,000 signatures were obtained.

2. Increase of mandatory minimum wage: same as 1. Arkansas is only one of four states that has a minimum wage below federal level and this legislation would increase it to a paltry $8.50/hr. Last raise was 8 years ago.

3. Medical marijuana initiative only garnered about 80% of required signatures.
