It should be mandatory that Arkansas legislators take an intensive 4 week course in American History before they start the Legislative Session. Then they won't vote for asinine bills like HB1703. This bill is part of an agenda trying to do away with the role of the Electoral College and have the President voted in office by a majority of votes. If this bill passes out of the legislature, Arkansas's votes and influence in Presidential elections would be worth diddle squat. The bill will ensure that no Presidential candidate will set foot in Arkansas. They will go to the heavier populated cities, New York, LA, San Francisco, Dallas etc. These cities will be electing the President.
The Electoral College was specifically set up to protect the smaller populated states like Arkansas and the dumb-ass legislators are going to throw away that protection.
