LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson is speaking to the state’s residents in his first general address since his swearing in.

Hutchinson was sworn in earlier Tuesday as Arkansas’ 46th governor. In his speech, he called Arkansas a state with natural beauty, a rich history and “unbounded promise.” The new governor noted that while he is from the Ozark hills, he knows the beauty of a Delta sunrise and the southern woodlands.

Echoing remarks he also made to legislators earlier Tuesday, Hutchinson said the world is in a period of consistent change and that the state must adapt or risk seeing its next generation take jobs elsewhere.

While calling for change, he said wants the state to retain its values, saying it could rely on God to guide the state and nation.
