Asa Hutchinson is entering his last term-limited year as the Governor of the Great State of Arkansas and what a great way to close it out, the National Governors Association closed its virtual summer session today with the selection of Governor Hutchinson as NGA chair for 2021-2022. The Governor served the past year as vice-chair. 

As one can imagine, Governor Hutchinson is very pleased to assume the Chairmanship;

“This is a highlight of my time as governor, and my pledge is to use the platform to build on the areas where Republicans and Democrats agree and work to remove the obstacles in Washington where we can,” Governor Hutchinson said. “One of my most important missions will be to help facilitate the states' partnership with the White House as we guide the nation out of the pandemic. We must combat the fear that many have expressed about getting a vaccination.

 

“My initiative as chair will be to improve access to computer science education nationwide. Arkansas has become known nationally for our computer science education program, and I want to showcase the efforts in other states and show why this matters and how we can expand computer science education. We will continue to have honest conversations with the White House and seek bipartisan solutions that work for everyone.”

Arkansas Governors are no strangers to this post either, Governor Hutchinson is now the third Arkansas governor elected to chair the NGA. Bill Clinton and Mike Huckabee held the position during their terms as well. Governor Hutchinson's third term will come to an end on January 1, 2023, after the November 3, 2022 elections.
