We’ve reported previously that the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce is polling members on their thoughts about an initiated constitutional amendment on ‘tort reform’ since the Arkansas legislature failed to put one on the ballot.
The measure would make it much harder to sue for damages and likely transfer important procedural control from the courts to the legislature. That way, meddling would be possible as needed tshould a plaintiff still manage to get lucky and win damage recovery now and then.
Want to take what I believe to be the chamber’s poll? A friend has provided a link to the survey instrument. Should the link get disabled, I’ve posted the survey on the jump, too. I think the survey is less about testing sentiment on tort reform — business is FOR — than about testing willingness to pay for the sure-to-be expensive campaign.
I voted as shown.
