Little Rock, Arkansas: A group known as Arkansas Initiative for Marriage Equality (A.I.M.E.) submitted language to Attorney General Dustin McDaniel (D) for a 2016 ballot initiative that would legalize same-sex marriage. This is the second same-sex marriage ballot initiative submitted in as many months, following the 2014 proposal to repeal Amendment 83. The ballot measure, which also contains a provision that churches or clergy members would not be required to perform marriage ceremonies it disagrees with, would likely require close to 100,000 signatures to make it on the ballot.[1]
