LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas’ new governor is speaking to members of the Legislature and the state Supreme Court in an address at the state Capitol.

After being sworn in, the governor called for Arkansas to adapt in a changing world, saying the state risks losing its children to Texas, North Carolina and New York if opportunities aren’t developed here.

He said that now is a time of consistent change - in politics, in demographics and technology. He said that, at times, people resist change because they are comfortable with the “status quo.” He said the status quo is not acceptable for Arkansas.

The governor said if the state doesn’t adapt to new technology and changes in the world marketplace, the next generation of Arkansans will move away - and that that is unacceptable.
