Arkansas Land-Based Casino Ballot Initiative (Lobbying Costs)

I wanted to post this for the record here and get other contributors' feedback.

"To gather the signatures, Couch said he contracted with National Ballot Access, a firm that pays canvassers to gather signatures. Couch used the same company with success in previous cycles, including in 2016 and 2014.

The group behind the casino amendment, the Arkansas Jobs Coalition, also used National Ballot Access, which Couch said prompted him to raise his price from $3 to $4 per signature earlier this week in order to compete."

So 96,170 signatures (with an assumed amount of personal info for state verification purposes) comes at a cost of $384,680 USD.

And that's to get the issue on the ballot only. It doesn't include other salaries/costs, or even the (greater?) cost of any "get out to vote" campaign that might occur if/when these signatures are approved.

Rich, is this in line with what you've experienced re: gambling legislation lobbying costs?
