LITTLE ROCK (KTHV) - Arkansas voters rejected a proposed constitutional amendment that would have made it legal to sell alcohol in all 75 counties, KTHV reported.
Supporters of the proposal had argued that Arkansas' current patchwork of wet and dry counties is outdated and that legalizing sales everywhere would boost local economies. Opponents of the measure said alcohol sales should be decided at the local level, according to KTHV.
Opponents spent much more than supporters in the campaign, with a majority of the money coming from liquor stores in wet counties, KTHV reported.
