ADEQ Director Testifies in House

May 24, 2017

The head of the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality is praising President Trump’s EPA for taking a step back from directing states. ADEQ Director Becky Keogh testified to members of the U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology’s subcommittee on Environment yesterday. Keogh complained that Arkansas regulators were routinely second-guessed by President Obama’s EPA and immersed in expensive legal research.

The global landscape is always ripe for shifts, but after Brexit and the election of President Trump, the changes seem more swift than ever. This spring Klaus Larres, a distinguished professor of history at the University of North Carolina, delivered a lecture about an age of uncertainty on the University of Arkansas campus. During his time here he spoke to Ozarks at Large.

From brunch to past midnight, there are several opportunities to see live music this Saturday.

On today's Ozarks, the Arkansas Supreme Court requests a raise in pay for its justices. And the rise of downtown revivals in Northwest Arkansas.
