(Kristin) Issue one is a proposed constitutional amendment that would change four parts of the Arkansas Constitution. I'll walk you through the proposed changes but check out our voter guide that goes into more detail about each issue. This proposal would prohibit attorneys from receiving a contingency fee that is more than one-third the amount of money that a client receives in a lawsuit. What is it contingency fee? It's payment an attorney receives only if a lawsuit is won, unlike a fixed fee that a client owes regardless of the cases outcome. Issue one would also limit an injured person or their beneficiary to receiving a maximum of $500,000 from lawsuits for things like pain and suffering or poor quality of life after an injury death or damage to property. Punitive damages in lawsuits would also be limited. The amount would be the greater of five hundred thousand dollars or three times the amount of compensatory damages awarded. The legislature would have the authority to increase these limits in the future. Punitive damages are awarded in lawsuits to punish and deter wrongful behavior. Issue one would also give state senators and representatives more authority to create change or delete Court rules. Currently the state Supreme Court has that authority. The number of state legislators required to make changes to court rules would be lowered from two-thirds to three-fifths under this amendment. More detailed information about this issue can be found in our voter guide available at

Republican nomination

Frank D. White – Incumbent Governor


Bill Clinton, one of the youngest ex-governors in the nation, at the age of 36, was running to reclaim his political career. Frank White easily won renomination from the Republican party.

White was hurt politically due to several unpopular decisions that he made, and Clinton ran an aggressive campaign.[1]


Bill Clinton, who was defeated in the last election, won the election, and elected again in 1984, 1986, and 1990, until his presidential victory in November 1992.
