A lawsuit by three voters asks that a proposed state constitutional amendment be removed from Arkansas' November election ballot.

The proposed amendment calls for ethics reforms and for a change in term limits.
The lawsuit by Yvonne Rich of Mountain Home, Frederick Scott of Maumelle and Kathleen Wilkstrom of Benton argues that terms in the proposal that relate to term limits are misleading and fails to tell voters that voting "yes" would lengthen term limits for state lawmakers.

A spokeswoman for Secretary of State Mark Martin told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) that attorneys are reviewing the lawsuit.

The proposal would set term limits of 16 years in either the state House or Senate. Current term limits are six years in the House and eight years in the Senate.
