Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson announces the signing of an agreement with C&H hog farm.
The governor announced a cease and desist to the hog farm located in Mt. Judea. C&H hog farm will be compensated $6.2 million for the agreement.
According to Hutchinson, the state should have never granted the permit to the hog farm. Some opponents fear the waste from the hog farm is contaminating the nearby Buffalo River, while others say there is no proof of that.
Governor Hutchinson was speaking at the 85th annual Arkansas Municipal League Convention.
