Now That’s One Stupid "S" Bill

The state House of Arkansas unanimously approved a resolution yesterday declaring that “Arkansas’s” be the official possessive form of the state’s name. Because it’s a nonbinding resolution, however, no one needs to obey it, including state agencies which wouldn’t even have to worry about changing their stationery. So don’t fret, you can spell Arkansas’s possessive any way you like. But remember, “its” is possessive, “it’s” is a contraction for “it is.” That is the law.
