Group Says Repealing 'Private Option' Won't Make 2014 Ballot

The group needed to collect 46,880 signatures by the Thursday deadline, but say just more than 30,000 signatures have been collected.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The Garland County Tea Party says their efforts to repeal the so-called "private option," passed by the legislature this spring, will fall short.
 
The group needed to collect 46,880 signatures by the Thursday deadline, but Head of the Garland County Tea Party Glenn Gallas says just more than 30,000 signatures have been collected.
 
Gallas says the next step is to show the amount of signatures as a sign that the public wants the private option defunded during next year's fiscal session at the state capitol.
