LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) - Arkansas now has a new governor; Asa Hutchinson was sworn in on Tuesday in Little Rock.
Hutchinson said it was a new day for Arkansas.
"My top priority as governor is to grow the economy of this state to create jobs," he said.
Hutchinson said he also has plans to lower taxes.
Rep. Greg Leding, D-Fayetteville, said there are concerns among some legislators about where the money will come from to pay for the tax cuts. Concerns also exist about the future of the private option healthcare plan.
"House democrats. . . do want to have a little more certainty in regards to the private option. We would like to see the governor's budget, which will be unveiled at the end of this month, before we move too quickly with tax cuts," Leding said.
