LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas: An Arkansas initiative that did not make the November 2, 2010 ballot, due to insufficient valid signatures, may appear before voters in a future ballot, according to reports. According to Secure Arkansas' message to supporters, the group proposing the measure, "Our legislation for this next session concerning illegal aliens is being written. Stay with us!"[1]

The measure's sponsor was gathering signatures for the fall 2010 ballot, but did not collect enough signatures for the ballot. Supporters have stated a desire to make the 2011 ballot. If the measure is sent to the ballot and enacted by voters, it would ban most illegal immigrants from receiving benefits given by the state.[2]
