Tim Hudson repays A-State for travel expenses

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Admitting that he may have been "improperly reimbursed for some travel to Mexico," former Arkansas State University Chancellor Tim Hudson has agreed to repay the college.

In a letter dated Oct. 25, Hudson submitted a personal check for $1,671.92 for travel expenses incurred during a trip to Queretaro, Mexico in 2015-2016.

"My understanding with ASUCQ starting in 2015 was that if accompanied by other A-State travelers then I would pay for my hotel," Hudson wrote. "I recall doing this in cash since I rarely use a credit card in Mexico due to security reasons."

However, since he had no documentation proving his assertion, Hudson remitted the money.

Auditors discovered the lodging expenses during an ASU System internal audit.
