LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KARK/KAIT) – Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders ended her first week in office by making some changes to the state’s COVID-19 response.
On Friday, Jan. 13, she signed an executive order, ending five previous orders signed by previous Governor Asa Hutchinson in 2020. The orders formed advisory and steering committees, boards, and a task force to handle the Natural State’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Sanders supported the decision by citing a statement from President Joe Biden made during a television interview in 2021, claiming, “The pandemic is over.”
